Wonder throws supprt at Obama

Soul legend Stevie Wonder has heaped praise on US presidential hopeful Barack Obama, insisting he will be a great leader if elected into the White House.

The 'Superstition' hitmaker launched his European tour on Thursday with a question-and-answer session with reporters at the Hard Rock Cafe in London, where he showed his support for the Illinois Senator.

Asked his opinion of Democratic nominee Obama, Wonder said: "He's a combination of JFK (former U.S. President John F. Kennedy), and Martin Luther King (Jr.). With that he can't lose."

The R&B star's European trek continues on September 8 in Birmingham, England and concludes on 28 September in Paris, France.
