New York, July 17 : A love letter to First Lady Michelle Obama written by Beyonce this spring is now being featured in a campaign video for President Barack Obama.
In the handwritten letter first posted to her website in April, the singer calls the first lady “the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American woman.”
“I wrote a letter to the first lady because I wanted her to know that I’m very grateful for everything she’s doing for our country and also for women around the world,” the New York Daily News quoted Beyonce as saying in the video.
But Beyonce’s admiration isn’t one sided. The First Lady also is a big fan of the singer
Obama took her two daughters to Beyonce’s concert in Atlantic City in May. And when the first lady was asked by People magazine which celebrity’s life she would most like to have, Obama picked Beyonce.
“If I had some gift, I’d be Beyonce. I’d be some great singer,” Michelle Obama said.
The campaign video featuring the popular first lady is being released as the presidential campaign has taken a particularly nasty turn, with Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney accusing each other of making dishonest attacks.
“No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope - she’s humble, loving and sincere. She builds and nurtures her family, while also looking out for so many millions in so many ways,” Beyonce writes of Michelle Obama.
“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,” her letter concludes. (ANI)
