Nearly 8,000 Floridians defied the slapping rain and wind along the Biscayne Bay to attend a get out the vote rally for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton -- with only week and a half left before the November 8th election.
MIAMI, FL – Nearly 8,000 Floridians, enticed by a raucous free concert by Jennifer Lopez, one of the world's most famous musicians, defied the slapping rain and wind along the Biscayne Bay, to attend a get out the vote rally for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton -- with only a week and a half left before the November 8th election.
Clinton walked out on stage to a large ovation from the crowd, her arms open wide, then gave Lopez a bear hug, before turning back to the crowd.
"We just heard Jennifer perform ' Lets get Loud'. Well , I say, let's get loud at the voting booth, " Clinton said. "Vote early."
"Just 10 days left in most important election of our lives and it might be a little easy to forget with all the fun and excitement and joy you saw on the stage Donald trump is out there stoking fear, disgracing our democracy and insulting one group of Americans after another, " Clinton also said." Will we let Donald trump get away with that? "
"Nooo!" The crowd yelled in response.
"Latinos!" Lopez, the Puerto Rican-American who has risen to global fame, and otherwise known as "J.Lo", also addressed the Miami crowd, made up primarily of Hispanics, before urging them to vote for Clinton.
Lopez played several of her most well-known hits, including " Let's Get Loud" while behind her on a massive HD screen images of Hillary Clinton's Democratic National Convention speech and scenes from parts of her biography flashed, along with constant "Vote Hillary" messages.
The video and images behind Lopez, and her highly-produced set with dancers, lights and pyrotechnics also displayed famous female historical figures, and at one point during a cover of " Respect", J.Lo changed the lyrics.
"R-e-s-p-e-c-t," she sang." Our first woman president!"
Grammy winner, and Latin ballad boomer, Marc Anthony, Lopez's ex husband, also performed at the concert and introduced Lopez before set.
"I'm here to support two women, that I trust my life with, that I trust my children with, " Marc Anthony said about Lopez and Clinton. "This is a special time in history."
At the end of the night, Clinton held the hands of both Lopez and Marc Anthony and they all raised them up high.
Cuban reggaeton super group Gente De Zona, which are signed to Marc Anthony's label, also performed at the free concert. The group played its huge hit, "La Gozadera."
