Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez Talk Women’s Vote in New Obama Campaign Video
In the clip, the R&B star talks about Obama’s inspirational road to the White House, and why he is the ultimate role model for her daughter, Blue Ivy. “It’s not just about supporting the President because I want to see him reelected,” she says. “I’m standing up for the future of my daughter, the future that I want her to see.”
Beyonce adds, “He also has the story that I can tell my daughter, because it shows that no matter where you start out, you can work hard and you can do whatever you put your mind to.”
Meanwhile, Lopez insists that “women will help decide this election.” She goes on to say, “I grew up with a strong, hard working mom — and dad — and two brilliant sisters. I learned that from an early age that when women come together, there’s nothing that we can’t do.”
The campaign video includes many female celebrities, such as Sheryl Crow, Eva Longoria, Olivia Wilde, Ashley Judd, Julianne Moore, Kerry Washington and Jane Lynch. The presidential debates begin tonight, and the election will take place on Nov. 6.
