Lady Gaga Update: Watch 'Born This Way' Singer's Passionate Speech About Hillary Clinton [VIDEO]
Lady Gaga made her voice heard in Raleigh, N.C. Monday night, speaking to a roaring crowd about why they should vote for Hillary Clinton.
Gaga appeared at a midnight rally for Clinton in North Carolina, widely predicted to be a battleground state in the election. The eccentric pop star spoke about the Democratic nominee's strength as her defining characteristic.
"This country needs your vote," she pleaded, adding that Clinton will "fight for the future of our children."
Gaga addressed Clinton's past experience of never giving up, even with the going got tough.
"She kept going. She kept fighting for women's rights. She kept fighting for the care of our children. She kept fighting for those who are in need. And the truth is that Hillary Clinton has done this over her entire career," Gaga explained.
Gaga asked the crowd to "vote for the candidate that has the heart," adding that "Hillary Clinton is made of steel. Hillary Clinton is unstoppable."
The singer concluded her speech by adding a little Gaga flair: "Why don't you put your voting shades on, practice your walk to the polls, and go out and vote for Hillary Clinton. I think it's time to come to mama."
Gaga then fittingly launched into her new song "Come to Mama", featured off her new album, Joanne. The lyrics of the song fit the nature of the event perfectly, with Gaga singing "Come to mama / Tell me who hurt ya / There's gonna be no future / If we don't figure this out / Oh, come tomorrow / Who are you gonna follow? / There's gonna be no future /If we don't figure this out."
Clinton had some equally kind words for Gaga herself, saying the pop star "has always stood for that fundamental principle of respecting everybody."
Gaga has been a vocal supporter of Clinton for several months now, making multiple posts on social media to get out the vote for the Democratic nominee.
