THE Black Eyed Peas reached out to President Barack Obama during their halftime show at yesterday's Super Bowl.
THE BLACK EYED PEAS changed some of the lyrics in their hit song 'Where Is The Love?' to send a message to President Obama, reports USA Today.The R&B group appeared to go down well at the Cowboys Stadium in Texas, but the appearance didn't go down without a slight glitch after singer Fergie found her microphone was muted at the start of 'I Gotta Feeling'. However, the problem was soon resolved and the rest of the performance went down well with the 103,000 strong crowd. WILL.I.AM changed the lyrics of one of the group's hit songs to mention the issues of education and unemployment. The 35-year-old rapper and producer sang, "In America we need to get things straight, Obama, let's get these kids educated, Create jobs so the country stays stimulated". The band were later joined by Guns N Roses guitarist Slash who began by playing the famous riff from 'Sweet Child O' Mine', before FERGIE joined in to provide vocals.
The band have been confirmed to headline the Wireless Festival in central London this summer. The group will play the event in Hyde Park on 1st July 2011, joining the likes of Pulp and THE Chemical Brothers on the bill.
