Hillary, 68, has been nominated as the presidential candidate of the Democratic party for the November elections. In her speech, Chelsea, 36, narrated the story of her mother, her values and family life and how she grew up.
"My mom is a listener and a doer, a woman driven by compassion, by faith, by kindness, a fierce sense of justice and a heart full of love. Mother Clinton never forgets who she is fighting for," Chelsea said.
"She has worked to make it easier for foster kids to be adopted. For our 9/11 first responders to get the health care they deserve. For women around the world to be safe, to be treated with dignity to have more opportunities," she said.
Chelsea said she was voting for the progressive who will protect the planet from climate change, communities from gun violence, will reform the criminal justice system and believes that women's rights are human rights and LGBT rights are human rights.
"I am voting for a fighter who never, ever gives up and who always believe we can do better, if we come together and work together," Chelsea said as she introduced her mother to the audience.
Earlier, a new video on Hillary Clinton made by award-winning television producing partners Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers was released. Narrated by Actor Morgan Freeman, the twelve-minute film, "Hillary" featured interviews with the President and her husband Bill Clinton, US President Barack Obama, a 9/11 survivor and first responder, as well as Clinton's childhood friend.
