Here are the lyrics.

When the night, has come and the land is dark
y la luna, es la luz que brilla ante mi
Miedo no, no tendré, oh I won’t, te asustaré
Just as long as you stand, stand by me
And darling, darling stand, by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand ,junto a mi, junto a mi.
Y aunque las montañas o el cielo caiga
no voy a preocuparme
por que se, que tu estas junto a mi
No llorare, no llorare oh, I won’t share a tear
por que se, que tu estas junto a mi
And darling, darling stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand, stand by me, stand by me
That’s class right there
And darling, darling stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand, junto a mi, junto a mi
And darling, darling stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand, junto a mi, junto a mi
Come on, swagga no too strong
What’s my name, Royce
And darling, darling stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand, junto a mi, junto a mía

Before she performed, she asked people to vote and expressed her endorsement for Biden.

Earlier in the week, Maggie Rogers performed on the first night of the convention. John Legend also performed on the second night.

Tuesday night wasn’t Joe Biden’s official acceptance speech. His official speech is scheduled for Thursday, according to the DNC’s schedule. He’s scheduled to speak sometime between 10 p.m. Eastern and 11 p.m. Eastern — the final speech of the Democratic National Convention. The main event begins at 9 p.m. Eastern (8 p.m. Central/6 p.m. Pacific.)

Kamala Harris is speaking on Wednesday night, along with former President Barack Obama.

The convention is very different this year. All the speakers are giving their speeches from afar rather than at the Convention itself. Many will be speaking from home and many (if not all) speeches will be prerecorded. So it’s been a very different experience this year. The convention was supposed to be in Milwaukee, but the coronavirus pandemic changed plans quite a bit. The anchor of the convention is still at the Wisconsin Center, ABC News reported, but delegates and speakers did not travel there. The only people there will be production team members coordinating a combination of live and taped feeds.
