Prince Royce joins a roster of new additions that includes Bob Weir, Dave Matthews, Donna Karan, Dove Cameron, Gavin Rossdale, Kaia Gerber, Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor, Lenny Kravitz, Madison Beer, Meghan Trainor and Shawn Mendes.

The Just Vote campaign aims to engage young Americans to check their status, register and vote in the November 2020 general elections and beyond. The non-partisan campaign has the goal of engaging one million young voters and get 50,000 young people registered ahead of the 2020 elections.

The group joins previously announced participants Billie Eilish, Billy Porter, DJ Khaled, FINNEAS, Julianne Hough, Loren Gray, Nicky Jam, Quavo, Taylor Swift and Usher.

“We are at a pivotal moment in the campaign as we head towards the final stretch of voter registration,” said Hugh Evans, co-founder and CEO of Global Citizen. “Through this campaign, tens of thousands of young people have already checked their voter registration status, but we have to keep up the momentum. It’s more important than ever to engage young people in the political process, and with the support of these great artists, even more young people will get registered to vote.”

By checking their voter registration status, young people can unlock exclusive experiences, performances and memorabilia donated by artists and entertainers. Once they check their voting registration status, participants will have the opportunity to receive access to opportunities like a one-on-one video chat with Kravitz, an acoustic performance by Matthews, a virtual hangout with Trainor and more.

Alaina Castillo Getting Out the Vote as Part of Spotify’s “Play Your Part” Non-Partisan Initiative

Alaina Castillo is playing her part in getting out the vote…

There are less than two months before the U.S. presidential election on November 3, and Spotify has unveiled a non-partisan initiative, featuring the participation of the Latina singer, that’ll leverage the wide reach of the streaming platform to encourage voter turnout.

Entitled “Play Your Part” and available on the “Home” section of Spotify’s official mobile app, the initiative is designed to provide resources, information and encouragement for users residing in the U.S.

The multi-faceted initiative, which kicked off on Wednesday, includes Spotify Voter’s Booth, a hub providing resources and information so users can register and make a plan to vote; new artist and influencer-curated playlists to keep users entertained during the voting process; special curated episodes about civic engagement from podcasts including Famous Fates: Movers & Shakers and Dope Labs; and video and audio voting reminders in several of Spotify’s flagship playlists.

Play Your Part includes a concerted effort to encourage young users to vote via partnerships with artists and influencers including Castillo, Conan Gray, King Princess, Chloe x Halle and more. From today, first-time voters on Spotify will receive messages from “fellow first timers” encouraging them to register.

Additionally, co-curated playlists from Seventeen Magazine and the music-focused voter registration organization HeadCount will be added to Spotify to encourage users to participate.

The Spotify-owned podcast company Anchor will also be launching an “election takeover” of its Sponsorships tool that will give podcasters the opportunity to donate their ad space to the voting nonprofits HeadCount, BallotReady and Democracy Works.

Earlier this year, Castillo was one of the artists featured as part of Spotify’s RADAR initiative, a global development program for emerging artists around the world. RADAR allows Spotify to deepen its commitment to young talent at all stages and strengthen their connections to their audiences.

Cardi B Encourages People to Register to Vote as Deadlines Approach

Cardi B is urging you to get registered…

The 27-year-old half-Dominican American rap superstar, who has never been afraid to get political, is encouraging everyone to get registered to vote.

In a video posted by her label, Atlantic Records, Cardi B keeps it simple:

“It’s Cardi B and let me tell y’all something, state deadlines are coming very quick so make sure y’all click the link in the bio so y’all can register to vote,” she says in the brief video supporting the non-partisan group HeadCount, a national non-profit organization that works with musicians to promote participation in democracy in the United States.

With less than 65 days left until the November 3 election, the push to register voters and make sure they have the necessary materials to vote by mail or to vote early in their states is ramping up.

Cardi B had previously voiced her support for Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders, interviewing him about his vision for the country and political views, before her dropped out of the race. She’s now thrown her support for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who she also interviewed recently.

Cardi B, riding high on the chart-topping success of her Megan Thee Stallion collaboration “WAP,” recently got into a social media tussle with former Republican congressional candidate DeAnna Lorraine, after Lorraine made an unflattering comparison between Cardi B and First Lady Melania Trump after the latter’s speech at last week’s Republican National Convention.

“America needs far more women like Melania Trump and far less like Cardi B,” tweeted the politician who failed in her bid to unseat Democratic Speaker of the House leader Nancy Pelosi, leading the superstar to fire back, “Didn’t she used to sell that Wap?”

Anyone not currently registered is directed to their state election website or offered a printable form to get registered.

“I promised to keep using my platform to take action and make real lasting change, so I’m working with ‪@headcountorg to help register voters. text VOTER CAMILA to 40649 to register to vote, check your status, etc. plus enter to win a video chat with me,” she tweeted.

The platform, called Vote Ready, was created by HeadCount in conjunction with technology firm Phone2Action

The organization aims to register at least 200,000 voters for the 2020 election and contact over one million Americans in a massive get-out-the-vote effort.
