CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 31 (UPI) -- James Taylor, the Foo Fighters and Mary J. Blige have been booked to perform at next week's Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., organizers said.

Politico reported Earth, Wind and Fire, Delta Rae, Marc Anthony, Branford Marsalis and Amber Riley are also scheduled to take the stage at the convention.

"This roster of performances only adds to the excitement building in Charlotte for the historic week ahead of us," DNC Chairman and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said in a statement. "The tens of thousands who will attend convention events in person, and all those tuning in across the country, should be ready for quite a show."
