Jay Z And Beyonce Perform In Hillary Clinton Concert In Cleveland [VIDEO]
Beyonce and Jay Z performed in the “Get Out the Vote” concert in Cleveland, Ohio, in support of Hillary Clinton on Friday night. Only four days before the election, the purpose of the show was to mobilize people to vote and spread the message about the importance of this election.
Beyonce revealed that she has always been a Clinton supporter, and she gave a short speech saying, “I want my daughter to grow up seeing a women lead our country and knowing that her possibilities are limitless. And that’s why I am with her.” She, along with her backup dancers, all wore pantsuits, the signature clothing for the Democratic presidential candidate.
The concert had originally been announced as a Jay Z performance, but it was not known that his wife would also appear on stage. The concert targeted young voters and included appearances by other famous rappers, such as Big Sean, Chance the Rapper and J. Cole. Although Donald Trump was never mentioned during the show, Chance said during his set: “Middle fingers up. You know who they are for.”
Clinton got out on stage after Jay Z and Beyonce to give a short speech, urging her supporters to vote and help “break the glass ceiling once and for all.” This is not the first time the presidential candidate has had famous singers at her rallies. Last month, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony performed in a show for Clinton, and Katy Perry is scheduled to perform for her in Philadelphia this Saturday night.
