Lipa recently joined influential figures such as Michael Stipe and Cate Blanchett in urging US President Joe Biden to call for a ceasefire in Gaza. The open letter, signed by numerous high-profile names from the entertainment industry, emphasizes the need for an end to the bombing of Gaza, the safe release of hostages, and the establishment of a secure route for humanitarian aid delivery into Palestine. Lipa continues to leverage her influence to advocate for important global issues, showcasing her commitment to making a positive impact beyond the realm of music.
