Not only is VOTE Sing Out, Louise's first video project and Get Out the Vote message (as well as a heartfelt homage to Madonna), it's also a testament to the importance of creativity, community, and what great things can happen when we work together. Midterms matter. Every vote counts. Make sure you're heard. And, VOTE • RESIST • SING.
