Watch Katy’s first performance of “Rise” under the cut.


Katy Perry roars and rises at the 2016 National Democratic Convention.

Katy Perry graced the Wells Fargo Center stage on Thursday night to deliver an uplifting performance in support of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Katy gave a special speech to show the world how much she supports Clinton in this presidential election. She’s been by Clinton’s side ever since the Iowa caucus by giving special performances and making special appearances at events specially for Clinton. Katy encouraged everyone to vote and be open-minded this year.

“I love Hillary, too. I have a couple of saved messages on my phone from HRC.”

Perry debuted the first live performance of her latest single “Rise,” dedicating it to Clinton by altering a sample of the lyrics to, “Don’t be surprised: she will still rise.” She also performed her #1 hit “Roar” to precede Clinton’s historic acceptance of the Democratic presidential nominee.
