Demi Lovato hits the stage for a performance during the first day of the 2016 Democratic National Convention on Monday night (July 25) at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Penn.
The 23-year-old singer gave a speech about living with mental illness before performing her song “Confident.”
“Like millions of Americans, I am living with mental illness. But I am lucky. I had the resources and support to get treatment at a top facility,” Demi said. “Unfortunately, too many Americans from all walks of life don’t get help, whether they fear the stigma or cannot afford treatment.”
Demi told the crowd that she is proof that people can live happy lives with mental illness and urged politicians to give more people access to treatment.
“This is not about politics, its simply the right thing to do,” she said.

Charlie Hunnam has confirmed that he will not be in the movie Pacific Rim 2 due to availability issues.
“I’m very excited about it. I’m glad they’re making it. I think it’s going to be great,” the 36-year-old actor told Yahoo at Comic-Con.
“I read an early draft of what they’re doing. There was one incarnation of this sequel that involved me heavily, but I was unavailable,” Charlie added. “They have a very definite schedule that they have to film because of politics and business surrounding filmmaking. Sometimes, non-creative decisions will dictate how something unfolds, which seems backwards in fact that we’re making art, or at least aspiring to make art. It just ended being unfortunately something we couldn’t remedy because by the time they got their schedule, we realized I wasn’t available.
“I think they’re on to something exciting. It’s a significant progression, which you always hope it will be,” Charlie said. “It feels like they’re really aspiring to push this thing forward and do something original with the sequel.”
