Black Eyed Peas, Katy Perry, Ne-Yo, Saweetie & More To Play Rock The Vote Livestream
Rock The Vote has revealed the details for their first Democracy Summer 2020 livestream event featuring performances from Katy Perry, the Black Eyed Peas, Ne-Yo, Eve, Chuck D, Big Freedia, Amara La Negra, Saweetie and more. The two-hour digital party, taking place this Thurs., June 18, will also feature speeches from senators Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, as well as activists and others encouraging young people to get out and vote.
The kick-off event will be hosted by actors Logan Browning ("Dear White People") and Rosario Dawson ("Briarpatch," Sin City, Josie & The Pussycats) and also include performances from Lucy Hale, Rich Brian, Sklyar Astin, Max, Leslie Grace, Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson.
"I'm excited to be a part of this kickoff to Democracy Summer 2020 with so many amazing talents, activists and speakers," Perry said in a statement. "The young people of America are speaking loud and clear on the streets and online, and come November, it will be more important than ever to fight for justice and equality, and against systemic racism, with our ballots."
More Democracy Summer 2020 events will be announced later, as part of a push to encourage voter registration and turn out during the pivotal elections this year. Democracy Summer is a collaboration with Rock The Vote and almost two dozen other non-profits, including Voto Latino, Drag Out The Vote, Get Lit and the House of Blues Music Forward Foundation.
