More than 24,000 people attended the event, the fourth of the day for the commander in chief, who earlier appeared at rallies with Katy Perry and John Mellencamp.

Dave Matthews and Bill Clinton boosted a rally for President Obama in Virginia Saturday, which attracted an estimated 24,000 people.

Clinton, who was losing his voice from campaigning, said he had given “my voice in the service of my president," the AP reported.

The former commander in chief also praised Obama’s economic plan, saying he had done well after being dealt a bad hand.
