Michelle Obama and Demi Lovato rally for Hillary Clinton at DNC

Two very powerful women rallied behind Hillary Clinton's campaign at the Democratic National Convention: First Lady Michelle Obama and singer and actress Demi Lovato.

Michelle Obama stressed the importance of voting for a president dedicated to America's children

"This election and every election is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four or eight years of their lives," she said.

The first lady also described how Clinton paved the way for her own daughters' success, saying "Because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters and our sons and daughters now take for granted that a woman can become president of the United States."

While not explicitly mentioning Donald Trump, she warned against a president who would be a poor role model. She said the country needs "someone who understands that the issues a president faces are not black or white and can not be boiled down to 140 characters."

Demi Lovato praised Hillary Clinton as an advocate for mental health resources.

"I'm proud to support a presidential candidate who will fight to ensure all people with a mental health condition will get the care they need to live fulfilling lives," Lovato said, "That candidate is Hillary Clinton."

She described her own experiences with mental illness and urged politicians to support better health care, saying "This is not politics, it's simply the right thing to do."
