Joy Villa, the singer who skyrocketed to fame after wearing a “Make America Great Again” dress at the Grammy Awards, gave the keynote speech at Saturday’s March4Trump rally in the nation’s capital.

Ms. Villa traveled to Washington from Los Angeles with Andre Soriano, the pro-Donald Trump fashion designer who created her famed dress, to deliver a speech at Saturday’s rally, organized by Gays For Trump founder Peter Boykin.

“We’re just blessed to be here,” Ms. Villa told Breitbart News. “I really want to leave my message of love and tolerance and support. No matter if you agree with what I believe or not, I can love you. I can have the conversation with you.

“It’s a beautiful thing to see Trump supporters of all colors, creeds, nationalities. People flew in from all across the nation just to be here,” she said. “This is really a proud moment for Trump supporters.”

Mr. Soriano, a Filipino-born immigrant who had never been to Washington before, said he was so overwhelmed by the support for President Trump that he started to cry.

“This is so beautiful,” he told Breitbart News.

About 1,000 people attended the rally, where Ms. Villa led hundreds in singing “God Bless America,” Breitbart News reported. The rally culminated with a march from the Washington Monument to the White House.

Ms. Villa and Mr. Soriano uploaded a video to YouTube on Sunday, still reeling from the excitement.

“It was beautiful, the amount of love and energy,” Mr. Soriano said. “You can feel the spirit of America right here.”
