Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, aka Beyoncé, hand wrote Michelle Obama a letter, and posted it on her blog in April. Now, in a video sponsored by the Obama For America campaign, the superstar singer-songwriter, who is married to Jay-Z and gave birth to a daughter in January, Blue Ivy Carter, reads her letter to the First Lady.
Calling Mrs. Obama “the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American woman,” Beyoncé calls her “a caring mother,” and says “she’s a loving wife, while at the same time, she is the first lady. No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope, she’s humble, loving and sensitive.”
She adds, “Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that 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.”
