As did Katy Perry (wonder what she'll sing..?)

Actress America Ferrera is looking forward to participating and issued a clap-back to anyone who might suggest entertainers don't belong in the political arena.

"I'm not here as a celebrity, I'm here as a person who has a lot to lose in this election," she said in an Instagram post. "Please stop telling me to shut up because I'm an actor. I am an American, and like everyone else, there's a lot at stake for me in this election. I will use my platform and encourage you to use yours."
