Seeking to increase the Hispanic vote for Hillary Clinton, Jennifer Lopez put on an eye-popping display in Florida. During the packed outdoor concert on a rain-soaked night in Miami, a scantily-clad Lopez put on a dramatic performance where she interspersed songs with huge images of Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama during her Democratic convention speech.
The Democrats hope that the event fires up Hispanic voters and drive turnout in a must-win state for Republican candidate Trump, in the election’s final days.
During the show, Clinton urged supporters not to let Trump get away with ‘stoking fear’ (or should that be stroking fear?) and ‘insulting one group of Americans after another.’
Playing off Lopez’s hit Let’s Get Loud, a staple at Clinton rallies, she also urged Floridians to ‘get loud at the voting booth.’
‘Are you ready for your voices to be heard?’ J-Lo sang while donning a sequin American flag outfit as she opened the show with the song Let’s Get Loud.
She added: ‘We’re gonna change things.’
‘When they go high, we go low,’ the First Lady intoned, while J-Lo performed with her 10 back-up dancers.
‘Now fellows I love you but I need to talk to the ladies right quick,’ Lopez said.
From the Daily Mail:
‘Now I’m a hard working woman, do you know that? I work hard for the money… You know what, you gotta respect that,’ she said – without having to mention Clinton’s all-out appeal to women voters, or backing of ‘equal pay’ legislation.
Another song intro featured former president Franklin D Roosevelt’s words from his famed speech in which he said, ‘the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.’
It was followed by a John F Kennedy speech – and a line from Clinton.
Then Lopez took to the microphone in a red cape and sang Love Make the World Go Round – at which point the skies opened up with rain.
Singing sensation Marc Anthony – who split from Lopez – offered warm words for his ex as well as his endorsed candidate.
‘And I want to say from the bottom of my heart… I am here and it’s an honor to support two women that I trust my life with, I trust my children with I trust my future with – listen to me this is a very very special time in history,’ he said.
‘After the establishment sees how we show up and how we vote and the power that we have, they will never mess with us again. They will see us as the force that we are,’ Anthony said.
Anthony played his hit La Gozadera, which translates as ‘the party,’ along with Cuban duo Gente de Zona.
