Queen Bey is with Hillary Clinton!
Beyoncé was a special guest star at her husband Jay Z’s concert in Cleveland on Friday.
“I want my daughter to grow up seeing a women lead our country and knowing that her possibilities are limitless,” said Beyoncé in stage, sporting a black-and-white polka dot pantsuit.
“And that’s why I am with her,” the “Lemonade” singer said.
“We have to think about the future of our daughters, our sons and vote for someone who cares for them as much as we do,” she added.
“If you are ready for freedom, make some noise.”

The set included “Freedom,” a medley of Destiny’s Child’s “Independent Women, Pt. 1” and her solo hit “Girls (Who Run the World)” and a joint performance of Jay’s “Holy Grail,” with Bey taking over vocal duties for Justin Timberlake Billboard noted.
The concert was created to inspire young people in Ohio to vote on Tuesday was announced weeks ago, but only as a Jay Z performance, not a joint appearance with his wife, CNN reported.
According to The New York Times, Mrs. Clinton called Beyoncé “a woman who is an inspiration to so many others” and thanked Jay Z “for addressing in his music some of our biggest challenges in the country: poverty, racism, the urgent need for criminal justice reform.”
“We have unfinished business to do,” Clinton told the audience after the concert. “More barriers to break and with your help, a glass ceiling to crack once and for all!“
She added: “Jay memorably said something we should all recall: Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther could walk. And Martin Luther walked so Barack Obama could ran. And Barack Obama ran so all the children could fly!“
The Carters weren’t the only ones present—Chance the Rapper and Big Sean performed as well.
“This is historic, this is a moment in time,” Sean said. “Make some noise if you’re registered to vote,” he concluded
This concert came quickly after reports suggest that less African-Americans are turning out for early voting than they did in 2012. Hopefully people in the battleground state will be inspired to cast their ballot on or by Tuesday.
