Katy Perry and Black Eyed Peas have been announced as the co-headliners for this week’s Democracy Summer 2020 virtual concert.
The ‘Daisies’ singer – who is pregnant with her first child with fiance Orlando Bloom – joins Black Eyed Peas as the headliners for the special event on June 18, which aims to encourage US citizens to register to vote.
Organisers Rock the Vote, Voto Latino Foundation, When We All Vote and March For Our Lives have set a goal of 200,000 new voters this summer.
The 35-year-old pop star has called on the nation to use their ballot to help in the ”fight for justice and equality” for the black community after the death of unarmed black man George Floyd last month, which led to global protests.
Katy said: ”I’m excited to be a part of this kick-off to ‘Democracy Summer 2020’ with so many amazing talents, activists and speakers.
”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.”
