Barack Obama is bringing a little religion to politics, with a three-city “Embrace the Change” gospel tour starting in Charleston at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26 at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the Obama for President campaign office on President Street or online at the campaign site,

“This is another example of how Barack Obama is defying conventional wisdom about how politics is done and giving new meaning to meeting people at the grassroots level,” Joshua DuBois, the campaign’s religious affairs director, said in a release. “This concert tour is going to bring new people into the political process and engage people of faith in an unprecedented way.”
