UPDATE: Texas Representative Joaquin Castro’s speech on Thursday touched on the divisive ideas that Donald Trump has been pushing for in the media. “In America, prosperity is not a zero-sum game. … We can keep America safe and still welcome the next generation of immigrants without a religious litmus test. And justice is not a zero-sum game. We can back our brave men and women in blue and still believe that Black Lives Matter,” he said. “These aren’t zero-sum games. They aren’t games at all.”
ORIGINAL STORY: Ready to roar! Katy Perry is set to perform during the final night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Thursday, July 28.
The former secretary of state, 68, will give her remarks between 10 and 11 p.m. On Wednesday, she made a surprise appearance at the event following President Barack Obama’s address. POTUS, 54, spoke for 45 minutes before Hillary joined him near the podium and gave him a hug.
Perry has been a longtime supporter of the former New York senator. Last October, she attended an Iowa rally on Hillary’s campaign trail and temporarily took over her Instagram account.
Additionally, Perry attended a fundraising concert organized by Hillary’s team in NYC in March. Clad in a shimmering patriotic-themed outfit, she belted out her song “Unconditional.”
“I sing this next song for her because I do believe this woman shows unconditional love,” Perry said at Radio City Music Hall at the time.
A lot of little girls are in bed right now dreaming for the first time, without limits. You broke the mold @HillaryClinton ??

Last month, Perry tweeted in reaction to the news that Hillary had clinched the Democratic nomination over Senator Bernie Sanders: “A lot of little girls are in bed right now dreaming for the first time, without limits,” she wrote on June 7. “You broke the mold @HillaryClinton.”
Perry won’t be the only one singing at the DNC. Other musical acts in Thursday’s lineup include Carole King and Sheila E.
