Music legend Quincy Jones has launched an online petition urging Barack Obama to appoint a Secretary of the Arts.

The 75-year-old producer has said that the US and Germany are the only countries with no culture minister, which he regards as ridiculous.

“Every country on the planet is playing American music,” he said. “And we don’t have a ministry of culture.”

The petition – which already has 53,000 signitures – can be signed here.
