Sitting at the piano, Lovato rocked a bright blue ensemble with diamond necklaces as she belted out the powerful lyrics to her ballad. The singer was accompanied by a handful of backup singers to deliver a beautiful and simple rendition of the track.
As she sang the song, "VOTE" appeared on the screen in big letters.
Lovato first teased the new song on social media on Tuesday, sharing a video of a young Black girl lip-syncing to the lyrics, "Were you ever taught when you were young... If you mess with things selfishly, they’re bound to come undone? I'm not the only one that's been affected and resented every story you've spun."
She released the full track Wednesday morning and announced her plans to drop a music video at 11 p.m. ET following the BBMAs.
