(CNN) - Former President Jimmy Carter is expected to show his support for President Obama through a tapped video address at the Democratic National Convention.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner did not speak at the 2008 convention, but was in attendance.

The DNC chairman said Carter will provide unique insight into President Obama's ability to move the country forward and why Americans need his vision and leadership for a second term.

The convention will take place in Charlotte, NC in September.

    Mike Ashcraft went to college to become an architect. A self-described “completely average” teenager growing up outside of Atlanta, Ashcraft says he was 5’3” and weighed less than 100 pounds when he got his driver’s license at the age of 16. Now, 30 years later, Mike Ashcraft has become a heavyweight. Not in a physical way, but in a spiritual one. He co-founded Port City Community Church in 1999, which has grown to have more than 5,000 members in 2017.
