I'd like to have a list of famous people (actors, musicians, TV personalities,..) who talk with a Chicago accent, or maybe more in general, people that have the northern cities vowel shift. Somebody told me that Barack Obama has a Chicago accent, is that true?
Some other famous people from Chicago are Anastacia (singer), Jerry Springer (talk show host) and Oprah Winfrey (talk show host). All of which speak with a pretty standard accent from the Chicago area/middle America.
