Democratic National Convention Will Feature Performances By Billie Eilish, John Legend & Jennifer Hudson
The 2020 Democratic National Convention is days away and after the announcement of Joe Biden choosing Kamala Harris for his Vice President, the DNC has announced more information about what the convention will be like.
On top of the impressive list of speakers including Michelle and Barack Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton and Bernie Sanders, the DNC has shared that Billie Eilish, The Chicks, John Legend, Jennifer Hudson, Common, Billy Porter, Leon Bridges, Maggie Rogers, Prince Royce, Stephen Still and more are all scheduled to perform.
The convention, which will be held over four days beginning on Aug. 17, will feature musical renditions ranging from the National Anthem to classic American songs, as well as other virtual speeches and appearances.
In a statement, the DNC’s program executive shared a statement about how this convention will be very different from previous, “It will truly be a convention across America, and these incredible artists will help us tell the story of where we are as a country under Donald Trump’s failed leadership, and the promise of what we can and should be with Joe Biden as president,” the DNC said in a statement. “These artists are committed to engaging with, registering, and mobilizing voters to get us over the finish line in November.”
The Democratic National Convention will air Aug. 17-20 from 9–11 p.m. EST.
