Beyonce Votes, Writes Open Letter to Obama
Beyonce has election fever! On her website, Bey posted a series of photos that captured her filling out her ballot, and she also posted a personal letter to President Obama in which she thanked him for his leadership and called him an inspiration to her daughter, Blue Ivy.
The singer’s note to the president read in part, “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.”
The ballot photos show the singer’s full name, Beyonce Giselle Knowles, and though it’s supposed to be a secret ballot, one of the pics shows that she filled in the box for “Democratic Party.”
Beyonce has been a supporter of the president and performed the Etta James classic ‘At Last’ at an Inaugural Ball for the president and his wife in January 2009 after Obama was sworn in. Bey has also met with Obama and posed for photos with him several times on the campaign trail.
See her handwritten open letter below.
