Demi Lovato DNC Video: Watch Democratic National Convention Speech, Performance
Demi Lovato performed at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Monday to help kick off day one of the 2016 DNC. Watch the video below!
The singer first took to the stage to discuss her battle with mental illness, and the need to address such issues in society. She then said Hillary Clinton is the person do to that. And then Lovato sang “Confident.”
As Gossip Cop has reported, the singer is an outspoken supporter of the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. In January, Lovato participated in a rally for Clinton at the University of Iowa, where she endorsed the candidate before also belting out her hit “Confident” in Clinton’s honor. During the event, the pop star told the crowd she doesn’t believe there’s a “woman more confident than Hillary Clinton.”
Later, Lovato noted why she’s voting for Clinton on Twitter, explaining that the former First Lady’s political stance is the main deciding factor, while “her being a woman is just a bonus” and “not the reasoning behind [her] decision.” As Gossip Cop also noted, Lovato performed at Clinton’s 68th birthday party in New York City last October.
Among the other musicians who were to perform on the DNC’s opening night were Paul Simon and Boyz II Men, while additional surprise artists are expected to take the stage in the days ahead. Check out full video of Lovato’s Democratic National Convention speech and performance shortly below!
