Katy Perry performs in support of Hillary Clinton at Mann Center For Performing Arts on Nov. 5, 2016 in Philadelphia. 

Also Common, Nick Jonas, Luke Bryan, Justin Timberlake, Brad Paisley, Lin-Manuel Miranda and others.

While the United States took Monday (May 29) to honor soldiers who died in battle or just enjoy some time off and barbecue with family, music stars too celebrated Memorial Day on social media.

With posts ranging from serious to playful, or even an opportunity to insert product placements, artists from Katy Perry to Pitbull to Nicki Minaj and more commemorated the occasion with posts for their fans and followers.

??----Memorial Day is always a powerful reminder to put aside our small daily concerns and petty grievances, and allow ourselves to be humbled by the magnitude of the sacrifices made for us by our Veterans and their families. I am continually grateful to all our men and women in service now, and the job they do—day in and out, often far from home and loved ones—protecting our freedom. I bow my head and my heart, and I thank them. "The greatest casualty is being forgotten" is the motto of the Wounded Warrior Project, and I encourage you to make any contribution you can whether it be monetary, your time or simply spreading the word. There are several other organizations that provide different services for our veterans and their families, check them out below today and see which one touches your heart: @wwp @the_22_project @sofwarriorfnd ----??
