The Rise hitmaker took to the stage at the Clinton election night party, where she spoke passionately about being proud of their ‘great country’

f you had to pick Hillary Clinton’s biggest celebrity supporter, Katy Perry will probably right at the top of that list.

The Rise star was enlisted by the Clinton campaign, with the star singing and speaking at her rallies across the United States ahead of election day, but while Katy might have swung a few votes – she wasn’t able to convince her own parents to vote for the Democratic candidate.

On election night, as the nail-biting results were underway on Tuesday night, Katy told voters at the Clinton election night party in New York that her own parents had voted for Donald Trump.

She said: “Tonight, my parents voted for Trump. But you know what? We will still all be sitting at the same table for Thanksgiving.”

“What a great country this is that gives us the freedom to express our differences, our opinions, our hopes and our fears,” the singer also said.

“This is the moment we need to remember that we all love our parents and we all love our children,” Perry added. “I can rest easy knowing that both my nieces at home will never see themselves less than equal.”

Over the weekend Katy urged young America voters to “rock for Hilary ” as she performed at a Clinton campaign event in Philadelphia.

The singer , a staunch supporter of the Democratic presidential nominee , donned a patriotic Stars and Stripes dress as she appeared at the “Love Trumps Hate” themed concert.

The 32-year-old star urged the audience to be sure to vote, telling them, “all the campaigning in the world doesn’t mean anything if people don’t vote.”

They might have voted – but many weren’t for Hillary.
