Music has the power to move us and change the world. So does voting. This Sunday, we’re bringing the two together to inspire you to use your voice this election season. Join this incredible group of artists for a virtual concert you won’t want to miss. Head to the link in my bio to reserve your spot.
In addition to musical acts, there will also be appearances by Margaret Cho, Billy Porter, the Queer Eye Fab Five, Helen Mirren, Maren Morris, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, just to name a few. Joe Biden, Jill Biden, Kamala Harris, and her husband, Doug Emhoff, will also be on hand. According to the event description, the stars will beam in from a variety of locations, with their appearances being a mix of live and pre-recorded segments.
It’s not surprising to see Cher lend her time to the concert since any fan of hers knows she is outspoken about her political beliefs—including her disdain for the current president. Back in August, she headlined a virtual LGBTQ fundraiser for the former Vice President, and her appearance helped organizers rake in $2 million for the campaign. The Queer Eye guys also previously co-hosted a fundraiser with Jill Biden.
According to The Washington Blade, at the August fundraiser, Cher told a story about visiting Biden’s office back in 2006: “He thinks he invited me, but really I invited myself. I saw a speech Joe had given and it was love at first speech.”
“So I went to his office to grill him. I asked him really pointed questions and unlike most politicians, Joe actually listened to me and cared [about] what I had to say,” she recalled. “He was honest and kind and smart.”
The beloved diva originally endorsed Biden back in February.
“Joe is smart enough, he’s kind enough, he’s strong enough,” she said at the time, referencing one of her classic Believe tracks. “I also know that the person, woman, man, camera, TV, in the White House is an idiot. I mean it. No, the guy is really an idiot.”
As she told the fundraiser attendees, “So ask yourself, do you believe in life after Trump?”
