During this often times surreal election process, multiple celebrities have spoken in support of or against both of the presidential candidates. This trend continues with what happened this weekend at a concert by Jennifer Lopez and ex Marc Anthony in support of Hillary Clinton.
The concert was held at Biscayne Park, where Lopez said that this election “is one of the most important in our lifetime” to devoted fans who braved the poor weather to attend the concert.
“Florida, home to one of my favorite cities, Miami, and millions of Latinos is a pivotal state in this election. It’s time to unify, support and vote for the only choice that makes sense not only for women or for Latinos, but for all Americans.”
Clinton herself made an appearance near the end of the concert to rally support before voting ends in just over a week. The presidential candidate made her own push as to why people should voter for her over opponent Donald Trump.
“It might be a little easy to forget with all the fun and excitement and joy that you saw up on the stage today, Donald Trump is out there stoking fear, disgracing our democracy and insulting one group of Americans after another. Well let me ask you this: Are we going to let Donald Trump get away with that?”
As of Saturday night, 3.3 million people have already voted in Florida, according to USA Today. Hopefully the concert encourages even more people to go out and vote during this “most important election”.
