The Mexican-American singers will begin a tour to promote the Latino vote in November

Today, Mexican singers Jesse & Joy will begin a tour called “Electrify the vote!” meant to promote Hispanic participation in the United States’ legislative elections on November, regardless of who they intend to vote for.

“It is very important to Jesse and I that people know they can vote for whoever they want, as long as they participate in the election,” stated Joy in a phone interview in Mexico.

The Mexican-American duet recently joined the Latino Civil Rights Group in the United States, formerly known as the National Council of La Raza, to perform at small stages in the border states of California, Texas, and Arizona, starting today in San Diego.

The singer explained that their aim was to perform a series of exclusive acoustic sessions. “What motivates us is that we want to give a message of unity to people and let them know that we can change things as long as we exercise our right to vote in a responsible way.”

Both Jesse and Joy claimed to be saddened by the separation of immigrant families at the Mexico-U.S. border.

As part of the “Electrify the vote!” tour, the singers will perform in Pomona, California; Tucson, Arizona, San Antonio and Dallas, in Texas.
