“It will truly be a convention across America, and these incredible artists will help us tell the story of where we are as a country today under Donald Trump’s failed leadership, and the promise of what we can and should be with Joe Biden as president,” Program Executive Stephanie Cutter said in a statement, the outlet reported. “These artists are committed to engaging with, registering and mobilizing voters to get us over the finish line in November.” (RELATED: ‘It’s Official’: Andrew Yang Added To DNC Speaker List)
