Singer James Taylor surprised volunteers at the Asheville HQ for the Obama for America campaign on Oct. 11, the same day as the visit from Mitt Romney and his entourage including Ronnie Milsap and Mike Huckabee.

This smartphone video just surfaced.

That’s Taylor’s wife Caroline onstage with him. Taylor also played a free outdoor concert in Asheville during the 2008 election and played at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.

“This is the first event where I’ve seen you all here that you didn’t have to be making phone calls or registering voters or working like crazy,” the Black Mountain News quotes regional coordinator Kristie Anderson as saying to the small crowd of volunteers. “This is just for you tonight, so enjoy.”
