Billie Eilish debuted her new song “My Future” at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night in an appeal from the party to young voters.
Before she took the stage, the 18-year-old Grammy-winner urged Americans to cast their ballots for Joe Biden “like our lives and the world depend on it.”
The Los Angeles native bashed President Trump, saying that he “is destroying our country and everything we care about.”
“We need leaders who will solve problems like climate change and COVID, not deny them,” Eilish said.
Wearing her signature baggy shirt and neon-green dyed roots, Eilish declared that “Silence is not an option, and we cannot sit this one out.”
“The only way to be certain of the future is to make it ourselves,” she said, before imploring people at home to register to vote.
Her performance was the first of three musical interludes on the docket for night three of the convention.
Prince Royce followed soon after Eilish with a cover of “Stand by Me” and Jennifer Hudson is set to sing later in the night, too.
