Former President Clinton and R&B singer Usher are saying “Yeah!” to Georgia Senate hopeful Michelle Nunn (D).

The former commander in chief will reportedly attend a fundraiser next week for the Democrat hosted by the “U Remind Me” crooner.

Nunn is facing Republican David Perdue in November for the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R). She is the daughter of former Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.). 

The Sept. 13 fundraiser will be held at Usher’s home in Atlanta, Ga., according to the Wall Street Journal.

The money-raising event may be a reunion of sorts for the unlikely trio. Nunn is the former CEO of the nonprofit Points of Light Foundation and received an award from Usher’s charitable foundation back in 2010 for her work. That event was co-chaired by Clinton.
