Hillary Clinton has appeared on stage at a Miami concert of best-selling 'tropical salsa' artist Marc Anthony, later tweeting to ask fans to join 'Latinos for Hillary'.
Marc Anthony was playing the first of two sold-out Arena shows in Miami, and Billboard.com have reported from the show, saying it was "hard to discern who approved and who disapproved, though the fist-shaking of some was an indication."
They report that Anthony welcomed Clinton to the stage, saying: "I want to recognize someone who came to the concert tonight. Please, with all the respect in the world, let’s hear it for Hillary Clinton.”
Anthony is a huge figure in the Latino music scene, having won two Grammys and sold in excess of 12 million albums worldwide. He is a known Democrat, and performed 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at the Democratic Convention in 2012. Clinton herself is said not to have spoken at the concert.

Anthony also encouraged his followers to vote, posting a video of himself with Clinton alongside the message "our vote could make the difference":

Clinton's election campaign has caught the attention of the musical world over the last few weeks, with the democratic candidate reportedly asking Kanye West to delay running for office until she's president.
She also recently answered questions about Lenny Kravitz' concert trouser malfunction, saying in interview that she'd "look for that."
