Hand-Written Letter Of Support: Beyonce Praises Barack Obama On Election Day
The results of the US election are announced this evening and Beyoncé has made no secret of who she’s supporting today (just in case you were in any doubt). If it was a contest in racking up the coolest celebrity supporters, it’s fair to say that Mitt Romney would have lost this a long time ago.
The note reads “President OBAMA, Everyday we see your heart and character, inspiring all of us to give more of ourselves. You are the leader to take us from where we need to be. You are the reason my daughter an nephew will grow up knowing that they can truly be ANYTHING they want to be.” She then signed the letter with the words “All my respect and ADORATION, Beyoncé.” This isn’t the first time that the award-winning pop star has used her website to praise the First Couple, either. Back in April 2012, she penned an equally encouraging note to Michelle Obama, via her website, describing Barack’s wife as “the ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African American.”
Beyoncé’s husband Jay Z has also been vocal in his support of Obama and yesterday performed at a pro-Obama fundraiser in New York City. He performed his hit ’99 Problems,’ changing the lyrics to “I got 99 Problems but Mitt ain’t one.”
