The five time Grammy Award winning recording artist and concert performer John Legend will premiere his new song, "If You're Out There," during an historic set opening the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado on Monday, August 25.

An anthemic call-to-action and evocation of human potential, "If You're Out There" reflects the themes of hope and change, responsibility and leadership, and commitment to a better tomorrow expressed in the principles of the DNC and the hearts of the American people.

"If you hear this message, wherever you stand, I'm calling every woman, calling every man," sings John Legend in "If You're Out There." "We're the generation. We can't afford to wait. The future started yesterday and we're already late."

"If You're Out There," produced by Trevor Horn and Devo Springsteen and featuring the Agape Choir, will be available online at following John's performance at the DNC.
