Barbra Streisand has given Barack Obama a big boost as he prepares for next week's U.S. presidential election - she has urged America's Jews to vote for him.

President Obama is seeking a second term in office and Streisand has shot a new campaign video suggesting he's the best man for Jews, insisting his chief rival, Republican Mitt Romney "does not share our values".

In the online video from the National Jewish Democratic Council, the singer says, "In this good man, we have a president we can trust, a president whom I trust."

She isn't the only superstar providing Obama with a last weekend boost before America goes to the polls on Tuesday (06Nov12) - Katy Perry, Bruce Springsteen and Jay Z will all be performing at campaign events all the way up to election day.
