Released on the opening day of the Democratic National Convention, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVi4rUzf-0Q">Dave Stewart’s “American Prayer”</a> is a pro-Obama ditty designed to tug on every heart string known to man, coming complete with a “We Are the World”-like video ( <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB000053" title="Jason Alexander" href="/topic/entertainment/jason-alexander-PECLB000053.topic">Jason Alexander</a>! <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB003106" title="Barry Manilow" href="/topic/entertainment/music/barry-manilow-PECLB003106.topic">Barry Manilow</a>! <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB001977" title="Whoopi Goldberg" href="/topic/entertainment/whoopi-goldberg-PECLB001977.topic">Whoopi Goldberg</a>! <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB0000748" title="Perez Hilton" href="/topic/arts-culture/mass-media/news-media/perez-hilton-PECLB0000748.topic">Perez Hilton</a>!
