Keywest urge Irish people to use their vote in a powerful video

In a very powerful video, Irish band Keywest have urged every Irish person to get out and use their vote in the Marriage Equality Referendum on Friday, and vote yes.

The video shows Irish people taking to the streets and marching for a yes result as Keywest sing 'I Will Survive'.

"The scenes in this video from the streets of Ireland are so inspiring, they made us proud," the band say.

Keywest remind viewers that in 1994 the divorce referendum passed by just 9114 votes, one extra vote per ballot box in Ireland, so every vote counts.

"It's not enough to just like the Marriage Equality Facebook page or add a YES to your profile picture," they argue.

"Facebook likes won't change our country, but actual votes in the polling booth on Friday May 22nd will.

"Let's show the world how far we've come. On Friday May 22nd lets show the world equality."

No matter what side of the referendum you fall on, their slowed down version of 'I Will Survive' is well worth a listen.
