Missouri native Neal Boyd to sing for Obama in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS | The 2008 winner of the TV show "America's Got Talent" has a new gig — singing for the president., The Web site for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reported today that Sikeston, Mo., native Neal Boyd will perform for President Barack Obama when Obama appears in St. Louis next week.

The president will be in St. Louis on Wednesday to urge Congress to give a final vote on his health care reform package. He will also headline the fundraiser for McCaskill, and Boyd will sing at that event.

Boyd once interned for Sen. Kit Bond, a Missouri Republican, but has performed at events honoring Missouri politicians from both sides of the aisle.
