Ariana Grande, like many other entertainers, is more focused on her art and doing what she does best, performing. She was never really into politics but this all changed after something really awful happened at a concert of hers.

Grande was performing in Manchester, England on May 22, 2017, when a suicide bomber bombed the area and killed 20 people. Grande was, of course, devastated, to say the least. Now, ever since this senseless act of cowardice happened during her concert in England, she has been standing up for what matters the most, gun violence. Not only is she taking a stand and fighting for what's right, but you will never guess who she is endorsing for the 2020 presidential election.

Although this attack happened back in 2017, Grande has been doing everything she can to support the fight against gun violence ever since. The following year, in 2018, Grande attended and participated in the March For Our Lives event in Washington D.C.

She has been working hard to make sure everyone knows where she stands and even doing everything she can to get her young fans to get out and vote. She now has a voter registration booth set-up to help and encourage each of her young fans to not just register to vote, but to actually vote for who they support in the 2020 election.

Now, it is 2019 and Grande is still busier than ever. Although she is nearing the end of her Sweetener tour, she is still doing whatever it takes to remain politically active. She is still encouraging her young fans to get out and get registered to vote and to vote for who they support as well.

So, just who has Ariana Grande chosen to endorse in the next presidential race? None other than...Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders. Yes, Grande has decided that she wants Senator Sanders to be our next President of the United States. Who better for the job than Mr. Sanders, right?

While she is on her last part of her Sweetener tour, and although she keeps working hard, she did come down with some health issues. However, Grande was never alone since she brought some help with her from her hit Nickelodeon series, 'Victorious.'

Because of her health problems, she had to cancel a show in Kentucky. But, this didn't mean she wasn't going to continue on with the tour because once that show was canceled, she performed her next concert in Atlanta, Georgia where she brought in two of her castmates from the hit show on Nickelodeon.

Liz Gillies and Matt Benning were the two castmates from Victorious who attended her concert in Atlanta. They didn't just attend the show, however, they got up on the stage and performed as well. Bennet performed a song he sang to Grande's character on the show and Gillies and Grande performed a duet together that they sang together on the show. Grande closed the show with her hit song, Thank U, Next. She also paid a tribute to the video from that song, featuring her two castmates, Gillies and Bennet.

In addition to featuring her two Victorious castmates on stage with her and in the tribute to her Thank U, Next video, Grande also paid tribute to her other guest at the show, Bernie Sanders. This is what she had to say to Senator Sanders,

MY GUY. Thank you, Senator Sanders, for coming to my show, making my whole night and for all that you stand for! I will never smile this hard again.”

In which, Sanders responded with:

I want to thank @ArianaGrande for not only being a wonderful entertainer but also for being such an outstanding advocate for social justice. We must all be prepared – like Ariana has shown – to fight for everyone who is struggling. It was great to meet her in Atlanta last night.
