In April, mega pop star Beyoncé published a hand-written note to Michelle Obama on her new website. Calling the first lady the "ULTIMATE example of a truly strong African-American woman," the role model performer, wife and mom made headlines for having a role model of her own. Now, Bey has teamed up with the President’s 2012 campaign to read her letter on video. She states:
"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. Michelle is the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American woman. She is a caring mother, 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. 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."
The singer has lent her star power to the Obama administration previously by recording a remix of her single, "Get Me Bodied," for Mrs. Obama’s Let’s Move campaign against childhood obesity.
