AMES, IOWA - Herman Cain performed gospel music inside his Ames Straw poll tent on Saturday.
"Let's see what my orchestra can do," Cain said, before starting to sing. "Give me that chord."
That "orchestra" included former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.), winner of the 2008 Iowa caucus. He played guitar on stage during Cain's first song, a gospel tune called “Hold On Just a Little While Longer.”
The lyrics include lines such as, “Hold on just a little while longer/Everything’s going to be all right.”
Huckabee is a hot commodity in Ames today, performing with Rep. Thad McCotter (R-Mich.) earlier in the day and scheduled to perform later with former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) and former Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-Minn.).
