CHICAGO (WLS) -- Some Chicago celebrities appeared in a new video urging the president to select the city's South Side as the new home for the Barack Obama Presidential Library.

Windy City LIVE co-host Val Warner joined current and former Chicago Bears players, radio personalities, musicians, and others in a video set to the 1962 song "Bring it on Home to Me" by Sam Cooke.

The University of Chicago in Hyde Park and the University of Illinois-Chicago on the Near West Side are two of the four possible sites for the Obama Presidential Library.

The other two finalists for the Obama library are Columbia University in New York and the University of Hawaii.

The video was released by the organization "Museum Campus South" and produced by the DuSable Museum of African American History.
