After making Billboard music history this year, pop star Olivia Rodrigo visited the White House to film videos encouraging young people to get their doses of COVID-19 vaccine. During her attendance, the 18-year-old music artist met with US President Joe Biden and Dr. Anthiny Fauci, the chief COVID-19 medical adviser.

Donning a vintage Chanel suit paired with white platform heels, the Fil-Am singer looked every bit of a woman empowered and in action as she stood behind the White House’s podium on July 14, 2021. On her Instagram account, Olivia shared a photo of her encounter with President Biden.

“[I] had the absolute honor of visiting the White House today and chatting with President Joe Biden about the importance of getting vaccinated,” she posted. “Even if you are young and not immunocompromised, getting your COVID vaccination is the best thing you can do for your health and your loved ones’ health. You have the power to save lives.”

Olivia first rose to fame as one of the stars of Disney+ series “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.” She broke pop music records with her January 2021 single “Driver’s License.” Her latest album “Sour” is currently dominating the charts.

With 14 million Instagram followers and a large music fan base, Olivia is certainly using her influence the right way!
