Jay Z & Beyonce Get On Stage For Hillary Clinton

Jay Z and Beyonce just endorsed Hillary Clinton in the biggest way possible. On Friday, the get-out-the-vote campaign concert took place in Cleveland with star performances from the power pair, Chance The Rapper, J Cole and Big Sean.

The string of concerts have been designed to drive up the turnout among younger voters.
Speaking to the crowd, Beyonce - whose dancers all wore 'I'm with her' T-shirts - shared an impassioneed speech, saying she would like to see daughter Blue grow up seeing a "woman lead our country and know that her possibilities are limitless".

"Less than 100 years ago women did not have the right to vote," the mum-of-one said. "Look how far we've come from having no voice to being on the brink of making history - again - by electing the first woman president. But we have to vote.

"The world looks to us as a progressive country that leads change. Eight years ago I was so inspired to know that my nephew, a young black child, could grow up knowing his dreams could be realised by witnessing a black president in office.

"And now we have the opportunity to create more change. I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country and know that her possibilities are limitless.

"We have to think about the future of our daughters, our sons, and vote for someone who cares for them as much as we do. And that is why I'm with her."

In response, Hillary said: "When I see them, hear this passion and energy and intensity, I don't even know where to begin. Because this is what America is, my fiends."
