The event was held at the gym of Allen University, a historically black college in Columbia, and also featured Grammy-winning gospel singer Yolanda Adams, BuzzFeed News reports.

Adams sang "America the Beautiful" and then Steyer's wife and daughter introduced the longshot candidate, who came on stage to give one last pitch to his supporters. Steyer, a billionaire from California, has invested heavily in South Carolina, a state that has a large Black population.

He told the crowd Friday night that he had fallen in love with the Palmetto State, and that he was "never leaving."

"We’re going to win this fight," he added.

Then Juvenile, who experienced sound difficulties earlier in the night, came back on stage and performed his song “Back That Azz Up," to which Steyer danced.
