Both prominent speakers are set to address delegates at Charlotte, North Carolina’s Time Warner Arena two days before President Barack Obama will formally accept his party’s nomination for the presidency of the United States. The First Lady also gave a speech on the opening night of the 2008 Democratic convention.

Watch Mrs. Obama’s 2008 democratic convention speech here:

According to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who referred to Mrs. Obama as an “inspiration to millions of Americans,” she will speak to the President’s character as a husband, father, and leader of this great country.

Castro will be the first Latino to deliver a keynote address at a Democratic convention, and he will reportedly expound on the President’s economic ideologies, which he has set in motion in his own state.

As of late, convention organizers have been trying to build up momentum toward the much-anticipated event.  They recently announced that former-President Bill Clinton would deliver the formal nominating address on night two of the political festivities.

Also on board will be Elizabeth Warren (pictured left), a rising star in the Democratic Party, who will speak during prime-time just before Clinton.  Warren, who is battling for the 2012 Senate seat in Massachusetts, came under scrutiny in May for claiming Native American ancestry, a move her opponent claimed was used as a method for career advancement.

The 2012 Democratic National Convention will take place September 3-6 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
