The Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh’s “Countdown 2 Vote” event this November will be headlined by popstar Kesha.
The general admission show is slated to take place in downtown Pittsburgh on November 3 on Liberty Avenue. Countdown 2 Vote is a nonpartisan event designed to inspire people to go out and vote on November 6, the organization’s president Gary Van Horn Jr. said in a press release.
“Young voters account for over half of the voting population,” Van Horn, Jr. said. “Unfortunately not all that can, will vote and Countdown 2 Vote is a chance to educate and remind people that every vote counts.”
“Together we can prove to our leaders and the rest of the world that we will not tolerate challenges to equality and freedom in our country,” Kesha added.
The foundation, a non-profit advocacy organization for the region’s LGBT community, previously had Kesha headline their 2016 sold-out Pride in the Street concert.
Kesha’s latest record, Rainbow, was a huge feat for the singer. She earned her first-ever Grammy nomination and Rolling Stone noted that the album was the “best music of her career.” The record features the smash-hit “Praying,” as well as singles “Woman,” “Learn To Let Go,” and “Hymn.”
Last month, the singer wrapped up The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore tour, and is currently scheduled for a string of shows throughout Australia and Japan this October.
In addition to her music, Kesha is known as an LGBT activist. She has been honored with the Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award, given to a high-profile individual that takes advantage of their platform to advocate for the LGBT movement. She is also an animal rights crusader – she was the Human Society International’s first Global Ambassador.
