Katy Perry performed a mini-concert for the Obama Reelection campaign Saturday night in Milwaukee. Perry turned up on stage wearing a skin tight dress emblazoned with the President’s reelection slogan “Forward”. It is estimated a crowd of 20,000 people showed up to hear the pop-singer and support President Obama in his quest for a second term.
Perry played four songs at the Delta Center, in Milwaukee. She opened with Al Green’s song Let’s Stay Together and followed it with three of her own songs Teenage Dream and Part of Me and Wide Awake according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
In addition to stumping for President Obama, Perry also told members of the audience that they should give to the Red Cross to support efforts to aid the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Katy Perry told the crowd:
“Let’s send them some love today. We care about America, don’t we. We care about our people. We’re a huge family, a huge family.”
She then urged the crowd that now was the time to get out the vote, saying:
“If you’re over 18, and you have a real cool outfit and you wear it on Tuesday, you tweet me and I’ll retweet it.”
Immediately after she sang a cover of the hit song Firework, while the screen behind her showed pictures of President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and Democratic Party rock star Former President Bill Clinton.
Immediately following the set President Obama joined Perry on stage to address the crowd.
“I just have to say Katy has been working so hard these last couple of weeks, and I’m so grateful to her.”
This show is the third Perry has put on for the President’s reelection campaign.
Obama took the stage following Perry’s performance in Milwaukee. He told the crowd:
President Obama is being flanked by dozens of celebrities in the final days of the campaign. He is being joined by Bruce Springsteen, Jay-Z, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, will.i.am, Jason Mraz, Stevie Wonder and Marc Anthony in various locations throughout the swing states that will decide the election.
