Katy Perry Performs For Hillary Clinton Rally In Philadelphia
After Beyonce and Jay Z, another pop singer took to the stage in support of Hillary Clinton. On Saturday night, Katy Perry performed at a Clinton rally in Philadelphia. The concert took place in the Mann Center for Performing Arts.
As the election draws near, Clinton’s campaign is doing a final push to secure more voters. The campaign is focusing on swing states including Florida, North Carolina and Ohio, where polls show Clinton and Donald Trump are running neck-and-neck. Perry, who is a longtime Clinton supporter, performed in front of a backdrop that read, “Love Trumps Hate.”
“What are you going to do on November 8?” Perry yelled to the crowd, who shouted back “Vote!”
Clinton appeared on stage after being introduced by surrogates U.S. Sen Cory Booker, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and actress Debra Messing. “This is a party with a purpose — we have three days left,” Booker said.
“More than 37.5 million people in our country have already voted,” Clinton told the crowd at the rally. “Now why are they out there voting? Because I believe they are standing up for a hopeful inclusive vision of America. I’m asking you to stand up for that same vision when you come out to vote on November 8.”
“I don’t think I need to tell you all of the wrong things about Donald Trump,” Clinton added. “I want to be the president for everybody, everybody who agrees with me, people who don’t agree with me, people who vote for me, people who don’t vote for me.”
Clinton’s rally in Philadelphia comes as state polls show her leading Trump by 2.4 percentage points, according to the poll-tracking website Real Clear Politics.
Trump has been attacking Clinton’s celebrity endorsements, saying: “I didn’t have to bring J-Lo or Jay Z. I’m here all by myself. Just me. No guitar. No piano. No nothing.”
Clinton’s campaign announced on Saturday she would join singer James Taylor for a campaign concert in New Hampshire today, Sunday, for another rally.
