The virtual Democratic National Convention kicked off in emphatic fashion last night with performances from both Maggie Rogers and Leon Bridges.
The first evening of the convention was hosted by Eva Longoria and also featured speeches from Bernie Sanders as well as Michelle Obama. Bridges then performed his new single ‘Sweeter’ with the help of Terrace Martin before Rogers performed a rendition of ‘Back in My Body.’
The series of virtual events are set to run all week and other artists set to show their solidarity with Joe Biden this week include Billie Eilish, John Legend, The Chicks, Stephen Stills and more.
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 mobilizing voters to get us over the finish line in November.”
This year alone Biden has already held virtual events with the likes of David Crosby, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Diplo, and others.
