In 2008, celebrities flocked to support then-Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. Two of which were R&B’s leading ladies, Alicia Keys and Beyoncé. Four years later, the ladies remain firm behind the man (and First Family) who is significantly changing their country.
Keys will speak at the Women 2012 Vote Summit in Philadelphia in hopes to motivate females to make their voices heard in the forthcoming campaign. She, along with a panel of women, will educate the female audience about President Obama’s stance on women’s rights, while discussing the changes that would occur if his opponent, Mitt Romney, were to win.
Knowles, on the other hand, is making sure that Michelle Obama’s various contributions do not go unnoticed. She penned a personal letter expressing her gratitude for the First Lady. “Michelle Obama is the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American woman,” she writes. “She builds and nurtures her family, while also looking out for so many millions.” Watch below as she reads the letter.
