While her husband was performing at President Barack Obama’s last rally in Ohio on Monday, one day before the U.S. presidential election, Beyoncé was writing a letter to Obama himself.
The letter, which she posted to her official website, read:
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 are to where we need to be.
You are the reason my daughter and nephew will grow up knowing that they can truly be ANYTHING they want to be.
All my respect and adoration, Beyoncé.”
Beyoncé also posted a photo of herself casting her ballot for Obama on election day Tuesday.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been very vocal about their hope of Obama being re-elected for a second term, hosting a fundraiser in September for the Obama campaign at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in New York. The fundraiser raised $4 million.
In July, Beyoncé also wrote a letter to First Lady Michelle Obama, praising her for being “the ultimate example of a truly strong African American woman.”
At Obama’s last rally in Ohio, Jay-Z introduced the president, saying, ““Four years ago we voted for hope and change. That change is also on the way, we know it’s not an overnight thing, but we absolutely want to move forward.”When Obama took center stage, he told the crowd, "It is an incredible honor to have Jay-Z and Bruce Springsteen both on the same bill.
"And not just because I have them both on my iPod ... but because they tell American stories."
