Chris Martin Shows Obama Support

Coldplay singer designs new armband

Chris Martin the lead singer with stadium slaying rock behemoths Coldplay has outlined his support of Barack Obama by wearing a new handmade armband bearing his name.

Martin has had a stunning year. Releasing ‘Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends’ in 2008, Coldplay were catapulted to global fame becoming one of the biggest acts on the planet.

Coldplay will apparently head back into the studio with ‘Viva La Vida’ producer Brian Eno soon, but until then Martin has contented himself with a series of performances for various TV and radio shows.

After a recent visit to BBC Radio 1 Martin exited the studio wearing his home made armband. The singer began wearing the armband during Obama’s election campaign, and has continued his support ever since.

In an interview before Obama scooped victory Chris Martin said that the Democrat had the ability “immediately change the whole outside world’s opinion of America overnight”.
