On Sunday Rihanna showed her support for Andrew Gillum, Florida’s Democratic nominee for governor.

The singer encouraged her fans to “make history,” if elected Gillum will be Florida’s first Black governor.

“FLORIDA: You have the opportunity to make history this election,” Rihanna wrote in posts shared to her Twitter and Instagram pages.

She continued: “If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t matter in the political process, know the most important thing you can do in supporting a candidate is finding someone who will take on critical issues such as: making minimum wage a livable wage, paying teachers what their worth, ensuring criminal justice reform, making healthcare a right, and repealing Stand Your Ground. That’s a platform we MUST support.”

FLORIDA: You have the opportunity to make history this election. The US has only had four black Governors in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida’s first! If you’re tired of feeling like you don’t matter in the political process, know the most important thing you can do in supporting a candidate is finding someone who will take on critical issues such as: making minimum wage a livable wage, paying teachers what their worth, ensuring criminal justice reform, making healthcare a right, and repealing Stand Your Ground. That’s a platform we MUST support. Let’s #bringithome, Florida. Vote @andrewgillum. And VOTE YES on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society. VOTE on November 6th!

Rihanna also encouraged voters to support Amendment 4, which would restore voting rights to convicted felons in Florida who have completed their sentences, with the exception of people convicted of murder or sex offenses.

“VOTE YES on Amendment 4 to restore voting rights to folks who have already paid their debt to society,” she wrote. “VOTE on November 6th!”

Gillum reposed Rihanna’s endorsement to his social media. “Much love & appreciation,” the gubernatorial candidate wrote. Ariana Grande shared Rihanna’s post on her Instagram story, as well.

  1. Go Vote like your life depends upon it because it does. There are too many people that clearly don’t understand that the people in political office determine the type of lifestyle society has buy making or enacting laws that impact how much we make, what we pay in taxes, who can get food stamps and under what requirements. Voting is a right that our forefather’s died for so we must influence everyone of sound mind to go, take their souls to the polls and vote. Those not registered and misinformed, get registered and give sound to your voice! Don’t be left behind because it is not cool! Vote November 6th wherever you are!
