Stevie Wonder has described the democratic nominee for America’s next president, Barack Obama, as a cross between John F Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jnr.
The musician said that "those two sprits”, when combined with Obama’s own, mean that he “can’t lose” November’s general election.
Wonder’s comments came during a question and answer session with reporters in London today (June 5th) – organised to promoter his European tour.
Earlier, US rapper P Diddy also pledged his support for Obama, describing his win over Hillary Clinton in the campaign primaries as “one of the greatest and proudest moments” of his life.

P Diddy, whose real name is Sean Coombs, told MTV that Obama’s win was “history in the making” and “proof that we (Americans) do live in the greatest country in the world.”
Obama will now face Republican John McCain in the race to become America's next president.
Wonder’s European tour includes three shows in the UK – in Manchester, London and Birmingham.
Tickets for the tour go on sale next Friday (June 13th) at 9am and will be available through Gigwise. Click HERE for more information.
