Lady Gaga, who performed at a Joe Biden rally in Pittsburgh the night before the 2020 election, celebrated the President-Elect’s win Saturday after Biden was officially called the winner in Pennsylvania, giving him the necessary electoral college votes.

“Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the American people, you just gave the world one of the greatest acts of kindness and bravery humanity has ever seen,” Gaga tweeted soon after the presidential race was called by numerous networks and news agencies.

“Nothing but love for our new Commander in Chief and the 1ST female VP elected to the White House.” Gaga added, “Also, way to go PA.”

Later on Saturday, the singer had a direct message to President (for now) Trump. “Please concede,” she wrote. “I know you can see how America has suffered during this election and fought over the presidency for 4 years. Please do your part in a peaceful transition of power so our transition can be peaceful too.”

At the Biden drive-in rally in Pittsburgh Monday, Gaga told the crowd, “To all the women and all the men with daughters and sisters and mothers — everybody, no matter how you identify: Now is your chance to vote against Donald Trump, a man who believes his fame gives him the right to grab one of your daughters or sisters or mothers or wives by any part of their bodies. Vote for Joe — he’s a good person.”
