Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state, reportedly made an unexpected cameo at the Tony Awards on Sunday night and received a standing ovation.

Clinton performed a musical number from the television series “Suffs,” which is centered on the early 20th-century suffragist movement and the battle for women’s suffrage. Clinton is one of the show’s co-producers.

“Now, I have stood on a lot of stages, but this is very special. And I know a little bit about how hard it is to make change.” Clinton remarked.

“I’m extremely proud of this original American musical by Shaina Taub, now two-time Tony winner. And, of course, it is about some American originals — the suffragists — who fought so valiantly for so long to give women in our country the right to vote,” she continued.

Former U.S. senator from New York and the Democratic nominee for president in 2016 Hillary Clinton greeted the crowd for their cordial welcome and gave a speech stressing the value of voting.

In 2016, Clinton made history as the first American woman to secure a major party’s presidential nomination.

Trump, the presumed nominee of the Republican Party for president, defeated her in the general election. This year, Trump is expected to seek reelection once again.
