VIDEO: Jesus Garcia Releases 'The Mighty Mr. Trump' To Get Out The Vote

LGBTQ singer, songwriter, and Broadway alum Jesus Garcia has released a new song and video to encourage the public to participate in next week's presidential election. Garcia, a Tony Award Honoree for his leading role in Baz Luhrmann's La Boheme on Broadway, is sharing "The Mighty Mr. Trump," available now on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, and more.
