Maggie Rogers and Leon Bridges helped kick off the first night of the Democratic National Convention on Monday evening. Rogers performed a stripped-down version of “Back in My Body,” from her 2019 album Heard It in a Past Life. Taking advantage of the DNC being held virtually this year, Rogers chose to perform in Scarborough, Maine while waves crashed in the background and wind blew through her hair.

Bridges, also set up in a scenic spot, shared a performance of “Sweeter” alongside saxophonist Terrace Martin on a rooftop with the sun setting in the distance.
