Jay-Z, Beyonce, Big Sean and More Release Voting PSA [WATCH]
Tomorrow (Nov. 8) is Election Day, the commencement one of this country's craziest and most controversial election years. To promote the importance of casting your ballot for the next President, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Big Sean, Chance the Rapper and more have come together to encourage America to "get up off of that thing" and vote with a new PSA video.
"For so long, our voice wasn't part of the process," says Jay, as the video opens with black-and-white images of African Americans cutting in and out of the screen. "Communities were underserved because our voice wasn't being heard."
As Jay reflects on what it took to earn his right to vote, he says, "So many people fought for these rights. So many people lost their lives for us to even have the opportunity to vote. I think we owe it to them - it's a major dis-service if we don't go out and let our voice be heard."
Parts of the video might look familiar to some as much of it contains backstage footage from Jay's Get Out the Vote concert held in Cleveland, OH.
"We have to think about the future of our daughters ]and] our sons - and that is why I'm with her," says Beyonce to a crowd filled with people supporting a life that's stronger together.
There's no question who these celebs are voting for - it remains to be seen who the American people decide they want sitting in the Oval Office. Do you know where you stand? We'll all know where we're headed soon.
