Celebs Wild for Obama

Obamamania is reaching a fevered pitch with the countdown to the Democratic National Convention just days away, and Barack expected to announce his VP choice any minute. Now A-listers have banded together for a music video to support the Senator, called "American Prayer."

Last night, "Extra" got a jump on Barack's big weekend at the Black and White Gala, where stars including Eric Roberts and Kathy Griffin showed their love for the Senator. Kathy told us, "I think his slogan should be, 'A time for way more change.' Not just some change -- we need a lot of change!" Kathy also has an idea of how they can spice up the convention. "They should have a car chase in the middle of the convention then everybody would watch!" she joked.

Eric Roberts is "absolutely" backing Barack and revealed his daughter Emma agrees. As for little sis Julia, he says, "You'd have to ask the rest of the family."

Spice Girl Mel B. is British, but says, "If I could vote, then I would be voting for him -- hands down."

The Denver convention will be a star-studded affair -- guests include Annette Bening and Warren Beatty, Charlize Theron and Scarlett Johansson, who gushed, "Here we have a candidate who speaks for us and with us and to us."
