Gabby Giffords led the DNC in an inspirational rendition of the Pledge of Allegiance. Watch Gabby’s amazing performance!

Gabrielle Giffords opened the final night of the Democratic National Convention, Sept. 6, leading everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance — and she did it all by heart! She truly is an inspiration for everyone!

Gabby surprised the entire convention when she walked onto the stage, accompanied by her good friend Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and placed her right hand over her heart.

Debbie only had to give her the first word, “I,” before Gabby took command. Tripping only over the word “indivisible,” she ended with a rousing “and justice for all.”

When she finished, the arena erupted into cheers of “Gabby! Gabby!” as anyone with a heart and soul wiped tears from their eyes.

Gabby has come an unbelievably long way since being shot in the head in January 2011 at an event for her constituents in Tuscon, Arizona. Her recovery is remarkable!

Everyone across America was moved by Gabby’s performance — Democrats and Republicans alike. Politics didn’t factor at all into the response of her emotional and inspirational pledge.

Did you catch Gabby leading the Pledge of Allegiance? What did you think Hollywoodlifers? If you haven’t seen it, watch it below! Be sure to have a few tissues (or the whole box) nearby!
