Katy Perry Rocks Red White & Blue for ‘Daisies’ Performance During ‘Democracy Summer 2020′

In an election year crucial for the future of the United States, a number of A-list stars joined Rock the Vote’s Democracy Summer campaign Thursday (June 18) with a two-hour virtual concert, encouraging viewers to register to vote.

Katy Perry headlined the show, draped in stars and stripes as she delivered a powerful rendition of her uplifting new single, “Daisies,” and her hits “Roar” and “Chained to the Rhythm.”

“Vote the change you want to see,” the screen behind her read. Watch a snippet of “Daisies” here.

The event, co-hosted by actors Logan Browning and Rosario Dawson, also featured remote performances by the Black Eyed PeasNe-YoBig FreediaLucy HaleAmara La Negra, Saweetie, Sklyar Astin, Max, Leslie Grace, Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Rich Brian and Michael K. Williams.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro also made appearances.

I’m excited to be a part of this kickoff to Democracy Summer 2020 with so many amazing talents, activists and speakers,” Perry previously said in a statement of her involvement. “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.”

Rock the Vote is planning additional Democracy Summer activations throughout the summer including on the Fourth of July and on Aug. 6, the anniversary of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. For more information, see Democracy Summer’s website here.
