James Taylor sings for Obama in Charlotte

Daily Kos has a report of James Taylor’s mini-concert in support of Senator Barack Obama in Charlotte, North Carolina, along with pictures and 2 YouTube videos from the audience.

It was a true amalgam of young and old, of black and white, and all wore a smile as we were ready to listen to one of the most talented, gentle and reflective singers of our lifetime. James was honored to play for us, thanking the audience a number of times.

Here’s the set list for James Taylor’s Vote For Change mini-tour in North Carolina:

  1. America the Beautiful
  2. Something in the Way She Moves
  3. You’ve Got A Friend
  4. Sweet Baby James
  5. Fire and Rain
  6. Carolina In My Mind
  7. Wichita Lineman
  8. You Can Close Your Eyes (with Kim Taylor)

Here are two 35-second clips of “Fire and Rain”:


Iddybud Journal also has a picture along with quotes from James Taylor.

Vibes the Music Blog also has a quick review.

Taylor was encouraging about the upcoming election and his optimism lit up the room. In addition, he proved just why he’s a hero in the music world. Having never seen him live before, I was impressed with his performance.

More videos taken by audience members, some from Charlotte, some from another stop on the mini-tour. Some of these are pretty rough, but it gives you a good idea of what’s going on.
