In a new video released today, renowned singer, songwriter, and actress Alicia Keys urges her fans, and all Americans, to “Vote Love” this year by supporting Hillary Clinton for president. The video, produced in partnership with MoveOn.org Political Action, highlights how voting can help bring about a more perfect union and advance trans equality, gender equality, sexual equality, and racial equality. In the video, Keys invites her fans and followers to share what they love and how that’s inspiring them to vote in this election.
The video builds on Keys’ other work to engage and inspire voters in this election including her performance at the Democratic National Convention.

In the video, Alicia Keys explains:
“This election has struck me so deeply, as a woman, as a Black woman, as a human being.  I have tried to make sense of the hate eating away at the soul of our country. America is angry. Many​ for good reason.
“But have we lost our faith in a greater future? Have we lost our wonder for that American miracle of harmony? In a race between moving forward together or moving backwards divided — how can anyone still be undecided?”
Keys adds:
“If we elect our nation’s first female president on November 8th, we won’t wake up on November 9th in a perfect world. But we can wake up in a more perfect union. And we will stay here, to fight for trans-equality, gender-equality, sexual-equality, racial equality, economic-equality. We will stay one and we will rise.
“​​I’m voting for Hillary Clinton, I’m fighting for a woman who was never meant to have a seat at the table. A woman who never quit, who never got too jaded for hope. She endures because she has faith in our kindness.
“This is our time to be strong. Now don’t tell me you can’t vote, you won’t vote. I know you’re strong enough. Because I know you love.”
“Donald Trump’s campaign represents a clear and present danger to the very fabric of our nation. Trump has led a campaign fueled by racist, bigoted, xenophobic, misogynistic, and violent rhetoric intent on dividing us,” said Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action. “That’s why we are so proud to team up with Alicia Keys, an artist who reaches millions, to make sure people get out and vote for a more perfect union this November by rejecting Donald Trump’s politics of hate and working to make Hillary Clinton the next President of the United States.”
Alicia Keys’ direct video appeal builds on MoveOn.org’s significant cultural engagement this election cycle.
Recently, MoveOn.org announced that more than 60 Broadway actors and actresses from five different Broadway shows including Beautiful, Book of Mormon, Fiddler on the Roof, Paramour and Waitress, have joined MoveOn.org’s #UnitedFor Campaign, an effort to convince Americans to vote against Donald Trump, reject his dangerous campaign of hate and division, and elect Hillary Clinton as the next President of the United States this November.
Last month, MoveOn.org announced the winners of its “Laughter Trumps Hate” content. More than 200 comedians across the country submitted stand-up sets, sketch videos, and Trump impressions, and a panel of all-star judges—including Judd Apatow, Adam McKay, Aasif Mandvi, and Negin Farsad, among others—selected one winner in each category.
And earlier this year, more than 100 high-profile celebrities and artists joined MoveOn.org’s #UnitedAgainstHate campaign to ensure Americans vote against Donald Trump and reject Trump’s dangerous campaign of hate and division, and committed to “use our platforms to bring attention to the dangers of a Trump presidency, and to the real and present threats of his candidacy.” The signers included actors, producers, directors, comedians, screenwriters, musicians, fashion designers, and other artists from across the country. Collectively, these artists reach millions of followers and committed to using their influence to ensure Americans vote against Trump this November.
