Katy Perry Performs 'Rise' & 'Roar' Live at DNC 2016 (Video)

Katy Perry hits the stage for a special performance live at the 2016 Democratic National Convention on Thursday (July 28) at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Penn.

The 31-year-old singer performed her current single “Rise” and her smash hit song “Roar” for the crowd minutes before Hillary Clinton appeared on stage to accept the Democratic nomination for president.

“Both of my parents are pastors and staunch Republicans. I didn’t finish high school and unfortunately I don’t have a formal education, but I do have an open mind and I have a voice,” Katy said. “So I’m asking you to have an open mind and to use your voice, because on November 8 you’ll be just as powerful as any NRA lobbyist. You’ll have as much as say any billionaire or you can just cancel out your weird cousin’s vote if you like. Because remember it’s not where you come from, it’s what you grow into.”

“So here’s how I’m going to use my voice, I’m going to vote for Hillary Clinton,” she said.
