After the victory of Joe Biden as President and Kamala Harris as vice President of the United States, many celebrities including netizens have offered their congratulations and wishes for both. Many have claimed that Americans have voted for the right candidates and it will bring a revolutionary change for the entire country and the world.
Well, Billy Joel also congratulated Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for performing the best in the 2020 elections. Also, earlier, Billy had kept himself away from commenting or showing any kind of interest in politics. Apparently, many celebrities have still not come out and offered their congratulations to the winning people as they believe politics isn’t their cup of tea or they feel okay to not comment on the same.
The Joel foundation wrote a statement in order to congratulate and the statement read, “We look forward to assisting the administration however we are able. Our foundation was formed to assist with music education and funding of the arts. Due to the immediate needs of the pandemic, we shifted our focus to provide relief locally. We are anxiously awaiting 2021 as a year of hope, health, and healing.”
However, last year Joel claimed that he feels good to be away from any kind of politics and said, “I don’t think I’m going to be politically involved. I find a lot of people resent celebrities touting their candidate. That can actually turn more people off than it can bring more people in. I try to stay out of politics. I am a private citizen and I have a right to believe in my own political point of view, but I try not to get up on a soapbox and tell people how to think.”
