The anti-Trump political action committee has shared their own music video for the song.

The vignette ends on an uplifting note, with people of all races, ages and genders coming together to vote in the presidential election.

“Demi Lovato put it best,” the description reads, and links out to a donation page for The Lincoln Project, which will go to voter outreach programs in an effort to “end the suffering, end the corruption, and end the presidency of the worst ‘Commander in Chief’ in our country’s history.”

After November 3, nobody will say anymore that young people don’t show up. We are showing up in record numbers and we are the ones who are about to decide the future of our country.”

She even shared a screenshot on her Instagram stories of a comment she received after releasing the music video. The comment read in part “I hope you realize this makes people that don’t have the same political views feel like they can’t listen to you anymore.”

“I’m personally ashamed to be a Lovatic right now but no matter how hard it is I’m not letting this song change my feelings about you especially after everything you have helped me with,” the person also said. “I really hope this doesn’t ruin your career Demetria.”

Lovato then shared her response to the comment, in which she stated that she had a right to her own political views, and that celebrities “aren’t just around to entertain people for our entire lives.”

“I literally don’t care if this ruins my career,” Lovato said. “This isn’t about that. My career isn’t about that.”

“As much as I would like to be sad that I disappointed you, I’m too busy being bummed that you expect me, a queer Hispanic woman, to silence my views/beliefs in order to please my audience,” the singer said.
