In order to make a difference and "achieve the future we collectively want", Harris argued, "we must elect Joe Biden", touting the former vice president's past achievements to make her case that Biden will be a president "who turns our tragedies into political weapons" and who "turns our challenges into goal".
Throughout their convention, the Democrats have summoned a collective urgency about the dangers of Trump as president.
Obama's address also became a hot topic elsewhere on social media, prompting fawning reactions from supporters, who dubbed the talk "spell-binding", "expertly delivered" and "truly presidential".
Harris took aim at President Donald Trump and told viewers that the stakes in the November 3 contest are a matter of life and death.
Later Wednesday, she is expected to accept the Democratic vice presidential nomination. Speaking before Obama, Hillary Clinton rued that voters took Trump's risky impulses lightly four years ago and were regretting not having voted in greater numbers "Look, this can't be another "woulda, coulda, shoulda' election", she said, urging people to vote early and vote in big numbers so there could be no doubt about the verdict".

Trump has left America's "worst impulses unleashed, our proud reputation around the world badly diminished, and our democratic institutions threatened like never before", Obama said.
America's first black president, Barack Obama, was also set to attack Trump as a failure during his speech on the third night of the all-online Democratic convention.
After avoiding direct criticism for most of Trump's first term, the scathing broadsides from Obama constituted an unusually harsh assessment of one president by another. "When we vote, things get better".
Ms Harris's nomination is the latest in a lifetime of firsts for the 55-year-old daughter of a Jamaican father and Indian mother who were immigrants to the United States. Beginning her speech she spoke about her own story of how growing up shaped her.
