Day two of the Democratic National Convention brought out tons of star power once again as the event rolled on with speeches from Hollywood actresses and performances by Andra Day and Alicia Keys. While both women delivered amazing performances, it was Day’s flawless delivery of “Rise Up” that left everyone floored.
Day took the stage following a powerful moment where the mothers of slain black men and women including Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, and Geneva Reed-Veal, Sandra Bland’s mother, took the stage to cast their vote for Hillary Clinton. Backed by a drumline, Day captivated the audience with a stellar performance of her 2015 hit, leaving everyone speechless.
Watch Day’s full performance below.
