With Election Day finally here, voters are taking to the polls to cast their vote for their presidential picks: Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. Well, we know President Obama definitely has one vote in his favor, and that comes from Beyoncé. On election eve, Beyoncé took to her official website and penned a handwritten letter to the president expressing her “respect and adoration.”
Back in April, B wrote a similar note to First Lady Michelle Obama, expressing how honored and inspired she is by the First Lady and how she is the ultimate role model for her young daughter, Blue Ivy.
“She’s a caring mother, she’s a loving wife, while at the same time, she is the First Lady!” Beyoncé wrote. “Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing you do for us — I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to.”
Queen B and husband Jay-Z have been long outspoken supporters of President Obama’s presidential campaign. In September, they raised $4 million in campaign funds when they hosted a fundraiser event at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club, and on Monday, Jay-Z performed at Obama’s rally in Columbus, Ohio, remixing his hit single “99 Problems.”
“If you’re havin’ world problems, I feel bad for you son/ I got 99 problems, but Mitt ain’t one,” Jay-Z rapped to an approving crowd full of Democrats.
