They’re with her. Donald Trump may have Scott Baio and Antonio Sabato Jr., but Hillary Clinton has a swarm of celebrity supporters — and a few dozen of them got together to record a Pitch Perfect–style video, which debuted on Tuesday, July 26, in support of the Democratic presidential nominee.
The first-ever female candidate for U.S. president often walks out to Rachel Platten‘s “Fight Song” on the campaign trail, so it was an ideal choice for a video to introduce Clinton on the second night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Tuesday.
The video, which was coproduced by Elizabeth Banks, featured the Pitch Perfect 2 director kicking it off by saying, “This is for Hillary.” Banks made her entrance at the DNC on Tuesday to Queen’s “We Are the Champions,” mocking the over-the-top entrance that Republican presidential nominee Trump made at last week’s Republican National Convention.
Her introduction was followed by a cappella performances from stars including Mandy Moore, Aisha Tyler, Jaime King, Jane Fonda, Connie Britton, Kristin Chenoweth, Idina Menzel, Ian Somerhalder and wife Nikki Reed, Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and several Pitch Perfect cast members.
After the clip ended, Clinton, 68, appeared via video on a screen at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia to thank her supporters.
“I am so happy for this great day and tonight,” the former secretary of state said. “What an incredible honor you have given me, and I cannot believe we just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet. Thanks to you and everyone who has fought so hard to make this possible. This is really your victory. This is really your night. And, if there are any little girls out there who stayed up late to watch, let me just say, I may become the first woman president, but one of you is next.”
