Beyoncé Knowles, who famously performed for President Barack Obama at his inauguration back in 2009, has posted a series of photos on her official website proudly proclaiming her support for Obama in the 2012 presidential election. I think it’s not a big surprise that Bey would be such an outspoken and avid supporter of Obama. She has worked for his re-election campaign and her husband Jay-Z spent much time campaigning with the President in the closing days of the election. Many people in this country vote with pride and it is very heartening to see, truly. Click below to check out Bey’s election photos and read the full text of a handwritten open letter she has penned to President Barack Obama.
These are the photos that Beyoncé posted on her official site that show her actually casting her vote. It looks like she voted early by absentee ballot, which means she banked a vote for President Obama before the final number crunching even begins today. Here is the letter that Bey wrote to President Obama:
While I still think it’s kinda weird to post these letters TO individuals on a public forum (rather than, say, posting a letter written about those individuals), it’s easy to see where Bey’s enthusiasm is. At this point, she is voting for a friend … who wouldn’t want to be proud to cast their presidential vote for a friend? Make sure that YOU get out there and vote for YOUR candidate today. Don’t forget, you can send me your I Voted sticker photos by emailing pinkisthenewblog @ gmail.com :)
