Not even the rain could stop Jennifer Lopez from showing her support for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during a packed free concert in Miami’s Bayfront Park Saturday night (Oct. 29).
“We are about to have our first woman president. Respect!” Lopez said.
The show started with Cuban duo Gente De Zona, who kicked the big “fiesta” singing “Bailando,” “Algo Contigo” and, of course, the famous “Gozadera,” where Marc Anthony made a surprise appearance to sing the chart-topping hit along with his pals.
Besides that, Anthony’s participation was limited only to present Lopez’s performance. “This is an unforgettable night. I’m here to honor and support a woman who I’ve trusted with my children and my life,” said Anthony, who was also very clear on how proud he feels of being Latino and the importance of voting in the elections.
Lopez appeared on stage wearing a short white and red suit, which included a belt simulating the flag of the United States. Her performance included “Waiting for Tonight,” “Get Right,” “Love Makes the World Round” and “Let’s Get Loud,” among others. Before closing the show, Lopez endorsed Hillary Clinton: “We have to take the right road to the future, we have the perfect person to take us there,” she said.
Then, Clinton stepped on stage and thanked Lopez and Anthony for the support. Of course, she didn’t miss the opportunity to take a jab at Trump: “Donald is out there stocking fear.”
The one-hour show was accompanied at all times by videos showing excerpts from speeches by John F. Kennedy, Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton, referring to the Latino community and women’s rights.
