As Election Day approaches, the Queen of Hip Hop and R&B are voting for a good reason. Mary J. Blige makes it difficult for the state of the country to be desperate to do anything to bring about better change and solutions. The Grammy-winning singer and songwriter has teamed up IWillvote.com for a new advertising campaign that encourages everyone to give in to complaints and grievances in the first place, and to make their voices heard by taking advantage of early voting work.
“We can vote. We can vote for our future. We can vote for the future of our children. Years ago our votes can and should be our vote,” Blige said. “That is the only way to make sure we make a change. “We are looking at … better jobs, better education, health and criminal justice reform.”
On Thursday (October 15), the former President Barack Obama his ad, which is backed by the Democratic Party, encouraged Americans to do the same, reminding voters that the 2020 election is not a few weeks away, they are here.
“There will always be reason to think that your vote is not important – it is not new. What is new is that the movement for justice, equality and progress is growing on many issues,” Obama said in an ad.
“This is really an interesting point, and it will only continue if we win this election. But it will come close. It can come down to a few voters like you. So I ask you to “Bring it home. Leave it for sure. Vote first,” he said.
According to Washington Post, nearly 15 million Americans participated in the first round of voting, which is a sign that voters are not allowed to stop the coronavirus pandemic barriers to wait in line (sometimes for hours) or cast their ballots.
Blige’s national ad will air on TV, radio and digital agencies mainly in North Carolina, where voting began early and because it is an important battleground state in the presidential election.
