Photo Courtesy - Island Def Jam Music Group(WASHINGTON) -- President Obama has appointed Jon Bon Jovi to the White House Council on Community Solutions, which will advise him on how to mobilize citizens, nonprofits, businesses and the government and have them work more effectively together to solve specific community needs.

The singer was chosen for the council because through his charity organization, the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, he's worked to create affordable housing for low-income families and support projects that help those families get back on the right track.  Plus, he's an Obama supporter, performed at some of the president's inaugural events, and has been to the White House several times.
