Katy Perry Gets Manicure for Obama, Helps Raise Millions for Campaign
With just weeks until the election, Hollywood’s finest are really pulling together to show their support for President Obama. The “30 Days to Victory” concert took place this weekend at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater and the stars rallied to raise money and awareness about Obama’s campaign.
Performers at the sold-out event included Jennifer Hudson, Bon Jovi, Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind & Fire. George Clooney even made an appearance.
When Katy Perry took the stage, she chose to not only sing “Firework” but she also did a version of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” which was famously covered by Obama himself at a Harlem fundraiser earlier this year.
While her performance was great, she chose to take her support to a new level. After tweeting: "Today I am so honored to play for the President!" she revealed a very patriotic manicure that even included pictures of Obama! How cool is that?
The 6,000 attendees each paid $250 or more to get in to the first event and then the VIPs went next door afterwards to an after-party fundraiser at Wolfgang Puck's WP24 where they paid $25,000 per plate. Wow! I hope the food was spectacular!
The two events really helped raise money for the president’s reelection campaign earning an estimated $5 million.
