The article goes on to state the following:
“You can see it in everything she does. From her music that gives voice to Black joy and Black pain, to her activism that demands justice for Black Lives,” said Obama. “And no matter how big the stages get, I know my girl isn’t satisfied unless she’s sharing all that shine she has with the next generation.”
“To my girl, I just want to say, you inspire me. You inspire all of us,” Obama declared.
In her acceptance speech, Beyoncé used the moment to urge listeners to get out there and vote.
“I’m encouraging you to continue to take action, continue to work to change a racist and unequal system. We have to continue to do this together. We have to vote like our life depends on it, because it does,” she said.
