The 'All of Me' singer will be joined by the likes of the 18-year-old chart-topping sensation, the country trio - who recently changed their name from Dixie Chicks in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement - and rapper Common for the upcoming political convention, which will take place next week.
Stephanie Cutter, program executive for the convention, said in a statement: ''These artists are committed to engaging with, registering and mobilising voters to get us over the finish line in November.''
Convention organisers have said the artists will perform new songs and American classics, and the event will be kickstarted on Monday (17.08.20) by youth choir members from across the country, who will perform the National Anthem.
The Democratic National Convention - which will take place from Monday until Thursday (20.08.20) - is a presidential nominating convention, during which delegates of the Democratic Party will formally choose the party's nominees for president and vice president in the 2020 presidential election.
Almost all of the convention will be held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic, after Democrats scrapped plans for speakers to travel to host city Milwaukee.
The entertainment lineup is in line with previous Democratic conventions, which have drawn on the party's heavy support from the entertainment industry.
Back in 2016 when the last election was held, Broadway stars, including Audra McDonald and Idina Menzel, gathered to sing 'What the World Needs Now', whilst some of this year's talent - including Jennifer Hudson, Billy Porter, and John Legend - have already performed at fundraising events for presidential candidate Joe Biden.
