Alicia Keys and Brandi Carlile are trying to get people to get out and vote.

To help their cause, they’ve teamed up together for a new single, “A Beautiful Noise.” They debuted the song last night during the CBS special, Every Vote Counts: A Celebration of Democracy. Alicia Keys hosted the show, along with Kerry Washington and America Ferrera.

Per Rolling Stone, both Alicia and Brandi spoke about the single and the importance of delivering the powerful message through music.

Carlile said, “The evolution of ‘A Beautiful Noise’ represents a group of incredible women from all different walks of life coming together with a universal message of hope and empowerment. It is an important reminder that we all have a voice and that our voices count. It was an absolute dream and honor to join the incomparable Alicia Keys to deliver this beautiful message through song. Alicia lives this song. This is how she walks through the world. I am forever inspired.”

Keys said, “This song has that special energy that we really need to feel right now. Everyone has the power to make beautiful noise and to lift others up with their voice. And now more than ever, we need to let those voices be heard by voting. I’m so grateful to have joined my sister Brandi Carlile, a beautiful spirit, inspiring artist, and incredible person, for this moment.”
