One of her celebrity supporters, Elizabeth Banks, put together a new, a capella version of the song
with many other actors and singers joining in. Banks made a video showing the performers singing (or in Jane Fonda's case, awkwardly speaking) their lines that was shown on Day 2 of the Democratic National Convention on July 26 before Clinton accepted the official nomination.
Banks, who directed the 2015 film Pitch Perfect 2
, used a style and sound consistent with the film, and enlisted many of the stars for the new "Fight Song." The ensemble was comprised mostly of actors (America Ferrera, Eva Longoria, Connie Britton), but also featured folks more likely to carry the tune, including Sia and Idina Menzel (Rachel Platten) was also part of the project.
Banks produced the song with Bruce Cohen and Mike Thompkins; the full cast is:
Aisha Tyler, Alan Cumming, America Ferrera, Ben Platt, Billy Porter, Chrissie Fit, Connie Britton, Elizabeth Banks, Ellen Greene, Esther Dean, Eva Longoria, Garrett Clayton, Hana Mae Lee, Ian Somerholder, Idina Menzel, Jaime King, Jane Fonda, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, John Michael Higgens, Josh Lucas, Julie Bowen, Kathy Najimy, Kelly Jackle, Kristin Chenoweth, Mandy Moore, Mary McCormack, Mary-Louise Parker, Mike Thompkins, Nikki Read, Rachel Platten, Renee Fleming, Rob Reiner, Shelley Regner, Sia and TR Knight.
