Lady Gaga really knows how to rev up a crowd. 

Dressed dramatically in an all-black Michael Jackson-esque number, Lady Gaga performed at a midnight rally on Monday in Raleigh, North Carolina to rouse support for the Hillary Clinton campaign and pledge solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

“We want you to stand up. Be a part of history. What I’m asking you is to be in this moment right now, with us, and fight for your future and the future of our children,” Gaga told the crowd.

Gaga then referenced the Black Lives Matter movement and sang “Angel Down” from her recent album Joanne — a song written in tribute to Trayvon Martin. 

She told Beats 1 the song is a response to “the epidemic of young African Americans being murdered in this country.”

Lyrics include the lines “Shots were fired on the street / By the church where we used to meet / Angel down, angel down / But the people just stood around.”

Even Bon Jovi got in on the action, joining Gaga on stage as they both sang an acoustic version of “Living On A Prayer.”

Fun fact: Gaga’s outfit appears to be the exact black military jacket Jackson wore to the White House in a meeting with former U.S. president George Bush Sr. all the way back in 1990.
