V104 cover star Alicia Keys has released a stirring new video encouraging people to vote for Hillary Clinton in next week's election. She cites a yearning for equality as her primary cause, joining more than 100 other celebrities who have partnered with MoveOn.org's #UnitedAgainstHate campaign.

In the PSA, Keys references her own past, and the prejudices she's had to overcome in order to get to where she is today. “I’m fighting for a woman who was never meant to have a seat at the table,” says Keys. “A woman who never quit–who never got too jaded for hope. She endures because she has faith in our kindness.” The video was released alongside her new song "Holy War," off her forthcoming album, HERE.

In a statement detailing why the organization has taken such a decisive stand against Donald Trump, executive director Ilya Sheyman said: “Trump has led a campaign fueled by racist, bigoted, xenophobic, misogynistic, and violent rhetoric intent on dividing us. That’s why we are so proud to team up with Alicia Keys, an artist who reaches millions, to make sure people get out and vote for a more perfect union this November by rejecting Donald Trump’s politics of hate and working to make Hillary Clinton the next President of the United States.”
