Night three of the 2020 Democratic National Convention was historic, as Kamala Harris became the first Black and the first South Asian American woman to accept a major-party nomination for the vice presidency. The event also featured a performance from another woman who's broken the glass ceiling: Billie Eilish.

The 18-year-old live-debuted her latest single, "My Future," and before her breathtaking remote performance, Eilish gave a powerful speech about the importance of voting in the 2020 election.

“You don’t need me to tell you that things are a mess," she said. "Donald Trump is destroying our country and everything we care about. We need leaders who will solve problems like climate change and COVID[-19], not deny them. Leaders who will fight against systemic racism and inequality and that starts by voting for someone who understands how much is at stake. Someone who’s building a team that shares our values. It starts with voting against Donald Trump and for Joe Biden."

"Silence is not an option, and we cannot sit this one out," she continued. "We all have to vote like our lives and the world depend on it because they do. The only way to be certain about the future is to make it ourselves. Please register. Please vote.”
