Jennifer Lopez and Zendaya to join Michelle Obama for voter registration livestream

Jennifer Lopez and Zendaya are among the stars joining Michelle Obama for a seven-and-a-half-hour event on Instagram Live next Tuesday (September 22, 2020).

The Registered and Ready Takeover, organized by the former First Lady’s When We All Vote non-profit will take over the platform for a series of conversations discussing the importance of registering ahead of November’s U.S. presidential election.

Ayesha Curry and NBA star Chris Paul will also join in, as will When We All Vote ambassadors Billie Eilish, DJ Khaled, and Fat Joe.

The event will run from 11 am to 6:30 pm ET at @WhenWeAllVote, @MichelleObama and @Nike’s Instagram pages, as well as on YouTube.

The live stream is being hosted in partnership with Nike and Laurene Powell Jobs’ Emerson Collective organization.

Performing during the voting drive are DJs including D-Nice, DJ Cassidy, Hannah Bronfman, and DJ Envy, and it will close with a virtual “#CouchParty” to encourage viewers to text eligible voters – with the goal of reaching more than 500,000 citizens.

A full lineup for the Takeover, which is part of When We All Vote’s Week of Action, will be announced in the coming days.

The live stream follows VOMO: Vote or Miss Out, an hourlong special hosted by Kevin Hart on ABC on Monday.
