Billie Eilish urges fans to vote for Joe Biden at Democratic National Convention
Billie Eilish has urged fans to vote for Joe Biden at the Democratic National Convention as the singer also debuted the latest single ‘My Future’ live for the very first time.
Eilish took part in the second night of the week-long series of virtual events with the first evening of the convention being hosted by Eva Longoria and featuring speeches from Bernie Sanders as well as Michelle Obama. With music provided courtesy of Leon Bridges and Maggie Rogers.
According to CBS, Stephanie Cutter, the 2020 Democratic National Convention program executive, said in a statement: “These artists are committed to engaging with, registering, and mobilising voters to get us over the finish line in November.”
Moments before the 18-year-old took to the stage with her brother FINNEAS, she shared a poignant video on Instagram where she begged her fans to vote for Joe Biden instead of Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump is destroying our country and everything we care about. We need leaders who will solve problems like climate change and COVID, not deny them. Leaders who will fight against systemic racism and inequality. And that starts by voting for someone who understands how much is at stake,” Eilish said.
“Someone who’s building a team that shares our values. It starts with voting against Donald Trump and for Joe Biden,” she then added.
