The popular singer then asked fans to take action with their vote in November so that they can “walk in our true power.”

“Now we have one more thing we need to do to walk in our true power. And that is to vote” she said.

“I’m encouraging you to continue to take action, continue to change and dismantle a racist and unequal system,” the pop singer continued. “We have to continue to do this together, continue to fight for each other, and lift each other up.
