Hollywood influencers will be heading to the City of Brotherly Love to support Hillary Clinton.
First Lady Michelle Obama, Senator Bernie Sanders, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will be headlining speakers at the Democratic National Convention at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
“While Republican leadership continues to run away from Donald Trump, and refuse to participate in the upcoming Republican convention, the Democratic convention will showcase enormously popular national leaders, rising stars from across the country and a diverse range of everyday Americans who will inspire the nation,” the DNC said in a statement.
The Neighbors 2 star, 19, wrote on Instagram Wednesday, “I am so happy to announce I will be speaking At the democratic national convention ! #DNC #ImWithHer going to be such a beautiful historic day and I can’t believe I have the immense honor of being part of it. Thank you @hillaryclinton!”

The honor! The thrill! We promise not to copy off Michelle Obama’s homework, dreamy as she is.”
Also speaking at the DNC are former NBA stars Jason Collins and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Debra Messing, Star Jones and Scandal‘s Tony Goldwyn. In addition, Katy Perry, Eva Longoria, Alicia Keys and Demi Lovato are set to make appearances.
