Jennifer Lopez Supports Hillary Clinton at Free Concert in Miami
“We are about to have our first woman president. Respect!” said the performer at Miami's Bayfront Park on Saturday night.
Not even the rain could stop Jennifer Lopez from showing her support for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during a packed free concert on Saturday night at Miami's Bayfront Park.
“We are about to have our first woman president. Respect!” said the performer.
The show started with Cuban duo Gente De Zona, who kicked off the big "fiesta" singing “Bailando,” “Algo Contigo” and, of course, the famous “Gozadera," where Marc Anthony made a surprise appearance to sing the chart-topping hit along with his pals.
Besides that, Anthony’s participation was limited only to present his ex-wife's performance. "This is an unforgettable night. I'm here to honor and support a woman who I've trusted with my children and my life," Anthony said of Lopez, who also was very clear on how proud he feels of being Latino and the importance of voting in the elections.
Lopez appeared onstage wearing a short white and red suit, which included a belt simulating the American flag. Her performance included “Waiting for Tonight,” “Get Right,” “Love Makes the World Round” and “Let’s Get Loud,” among others.
Before closing the show, Lopez endorsed Hillary Clinton. “We have to take the right road to the future, we have the perfect person to take us there,” she said.
Then, Clinton stepped onstage and thanked Lopez and Anthony for the support. Of course, the presidential candidate didn't miss the opportunity to take a jab at Donald Trump: "Donald is out there stocking fear!"
The one-hour show was accompanied by videos showing excerpts from speeches by John F. Kennedy, President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama and Clinton herself, referring to the Latino community and women's rights.
