A long list of stars have lined up to speak on behalf of Hillary Clinton at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Musicians, actors, athletes and other popular figures will show their faces at the week-long event, which kicked off Monday. The list of celebrities is many and varied, ranging from pop stars like Katy Perry to sports icons like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and NASA astronaut Capt. Mark Kelly.

Name-brand celebrities were apparently hard to come by for Clinton's opponent Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention. At the event, held last week in Cleveland, actor Scott Baio was arguably the biggest star on the bill.

Below is a full list of entertainers who are tentatively scheduled to speak during the 2016 DNC.


  • Lena Dunham
  • Debra Messing
  • Eva Longoria
  • America Ferrera
  • Chloe Grace Moretz
  • Tony Goldwyn


  • Katy Perry
  • Demi Lovato


  • Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
  • Jason Collins

Other stars who've said they would be attending the DNC include actors Shailene Woodley, Susan Sarandon, Elizabeth Banks and Rosario Dawson. Musicians like Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg and Paul Simon will also be in the Philadelphia area performing at various events in support of the Democratic party.
