Clinton, who is awaiting the fate of the election against Republican nominee Donald Trump, has been supported by a bevy of Hollywood A-listers throughout her campaign, so the fete will not disappoint. Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Shonda Rhimes, Pharrell Williams, Lady Gaga and more stars are likely to attend.
The former secretary of state will also deliver either a victory speech or a concession speech before her supporters and beneath a literal glass ceiling — the Javits Center is almost entirely glass and steel.
“Years from today, when your kids and grandkids ask what you did in 2016, when everything was on the line, I want you to be able to say that you did vote,” Clinton said during a rally on Monday, November 7, at the Independence Mall in Philadelphia alongside President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama. “You voted for an inclusive, big-hearted, open-minded country — a future that will make sure that we all keep moving together. Because I do believe we are stronger together. And you voted for an America where we build bridges, not walls.”
