Jennifer Lopez is encouraging all Latinos residing in the United States to vote on Nov. 8.
On her Instagram account, the actress shared a short video reminding Latinos and Florida residents to exercise their right to vote for their president. “Florida! This place is very special to me. This year 27 million Latinos will be eligible to vote. So that means we have a powerful voice and will impact this election,” she said.
Lopez went on to remind her 53 million followers on Instagram to vote for Hillary Clinton. “We must show up and vote! Don’t let me down. Let’s show that we’re with her,” she said in reference to Clinton’s official hashtag, “I’m With Her.”
Aside from supporting Clinton’s presidential campaign, Lopez is also busy filming for the upcoming second season of “Shades of Blue.” The NBC series was recently renewed for 13 episodes, which will kick off in January 2017. While speaking with Deadline, Lopez said that juggling her many projects was definitely challenging, but she tries to always stay focused on what she’s doing at a particular time.
“While I was shooting ‘Shades,’ I was doing ‘American Idol’ on the weekends. But we were also planning my Vegas show at that time. Then I went home and rehearsed for five weeks, and then we were live on the show. So it was a challenging year,” she said.
Meanwhile, Lopez plays the role of Harlee Santos in the TV series. The character works very closely with Lieutenant Michael Wozniak (Ray Liotta). In Season 1, it was revealed that the gruff and corrupt cop actually had a fling with another male character. In an interview with TV Insider, Liotta said that playing the role of a bisexual character was challenging and odd.
“Shades of Blue” Season 2 will premiere on NBC sometime next year.
