Billie Eilish is asking American citizens to vote for their “future” during the third night of the Democratic National Convention.
The 18-year-old singer performed ‘My Future,’ which is her first single she’s released since quarantine, on the third night of the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday.
Before her performance, Billie Eilish opened up on the urgency of voting and endorsed Joe Biden.
“You don’t need me to tell you that things are a mess. Donald Trump is destroying our country and everything we care about,” she began taking a dig at the US President.
“We need leaders who will solve problems like climate change and COVID, not deny them,” Billie Eilish said.
“Leaders who will fight against systemic racism and inequality and that starts by voting for someone who understands how much is at stake,” she said.
“Someone who’s building a team that shares our values. It starts with voting against Donald Trump and for Joe Biden,” Billie Eilish added.
“Silence is not an option, and we cannot sit this one out,” she said. “We all have to vote like our lives and the world depend on it because they do.”
“The only way to be certain about the future is to make it ourselves. Please register. Please vote,” Billie Eilish conluded.
Backed by her brother Finneas, the five-time Grammy winner hit the stage playing a lit-up electric piano as she moved to center stage to sing.
Earlier this week, the Democratic National Convention featured performances from Maggie Rogers, Billy Porter, Leon Bridges, Stephen Stills, and John Legend, reports pitchfork.
