LOS ANGELES — Amid calls for Hillary Clinton to pull out of the presidential race, a music producer is offering to pay the senator and her daughter Chelsea $1 million to star in his upcoming video.


Los Angeles-based music producer Al Walser (a Goodwill Ambassador for the tiny principality of Liechtenstein, who was brought to the States by Michael Jackson’s family and previously resided in their Encino, Calif., compound) is a former member of international pop group Fun Factory and has since launched a solo singing career.

However, the artist/producer (who is also working with Jermaine Jackson) has placed an offer to the Clinton ladies to be featured in his upcoming single "Yes I Can." The song is a take on Obama’s slogan "Yes We Can" and centers around the fact that "anything is possible."

"We always wanted to fill this part with a known political female public figure, and I was told that Hillary currently had great use for the money," Walser told Pop Tarts.

"As for Chelsea, the idea really started in Liechtenstein as she is super popular in our country, so it's a must that she'll make an appearance in the video too. I'd also be more than happy to accommodate her and fiancé Marc Mezvinsky in the principality and also tour our beautiful little

(Rumors that Chelsea and Mezvinsky are engaged have been going around for some time, but have not been confirmed.)

Singer Macy Gray has also been working in the studio with Walser on the track, and is "top of the list" as the lead vocalist for the song. Walser is currently waiting to hear back from Clinton’s office.

"I’m happy to negotiate the role Chelsea and Hillary will play in the video," he said, adding that they may prefer using archival footage due to their hectic schedules (if, of course, they want any part in it at all).

Walser initially met Hillary in January at a fundraiser in Beverly Hills (Chelsea was also present); however, he also has close ties to Barack Obama, who he says promised to be the first president to visit Liechtenstein if elected.
