Angela Bassett, Sigourney Weaver at Day 3

Associated Press logo Associated Press 27/07/2016

Actresses Angela Bassett and Sigourney Weaver, Empire producer Lee Daniels and rocker Lenny Kravitz are providing the celebrity power on Day 3 of the Democratic National Convention.

Weaver will introduce a climate-change film by director James Cameron, Not Reality TV, featuring Jack Black, Don Cheadle, America Ferrera and the party's presidential nominee herself, Hillary Clinton.

"We made this film to show the reality of climate change - how it's directly affecting millions of people each day," Cameron said in a statement.

"As I've said before, to save our planet we need to mobilise like we did during World War II - the threat to our country and children is that severe."

The busy midway point for the Democrats on Wednesday comes after a surprise performance by Kesha at an invitation-only gun control concert on Tuesday night in Philadelphia.

On Wednesday night, Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas will put on separate concerts; they haven't performed together in five years.

The Black Eyed Peas are listed as headliners for a Rock The Vote concert at the Fillmore Philadelphia, while Fergie is headlining a concert for the Creative Coalition.

Like previous Democratic conventions, this one has been celeb-soaked. Actress Shailene Woodley wandered the floor on Tuesday, as did Rosario Dawson, who snapped selfies with delegates.

Also in town: TV mogul Shonda Rhimes, who attended a Tuesday Emily's List event; singer Lance Bass, who goofed around at the convention hall with actor Kal Penn; and actress Chloe Grace Moretz, who attended an after-party on Tuesday night and is slated to speak on Thursday.
