Mere days before the state's caucuses, Hillary Clinton supporters gathered at the University of Iowa for a rally that featured yet another star-studded endorsement for the Democratic presidential candidate and frontrunner. On Thursday evening, singer and actress Demi Lovato joined Hillary Clinton's campaign in Iowa, performing in front of a delighted crowd as the former secretary of state works to pull ahead again in the polls against surging Democratic rival Bernie Sanders.
Lovato took the stage and performed her new hit song "Confident," later dedicating another to Clinton, "who everyone should vote for," the singer said.
It's not the first celebrity endorsement that Clinton has received. Katy Perry and Lena Dunham — who many look to as a young feminist figure — have hit the campaign trail with Clinton in an effort to court younger female voters. Other powerful female celebrities such as Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, and Olivia Wilde have been seen at Clinton events, or, at the very least, seen snapping selfies with her.
"It's time we celebrated the real superstar here. I couldn't be more thrilled to be here in support of [Clinton]," Lovato told the audience while introducing Clinton after her performance. "I'm voting for Hillary because she completely embodies the concept of female empowerment."
"I truly believe that there is nobody more qualified to run this country — our country — than our Secretary of State Hillary Clinton," Lovato said, before Clinton joined her on stage.
