Michelle said … “I am here today to speak about The Queen– you know the one. Ever since she was a little woman in Houston, Beyonce Knowles Carter has been lighting up the stages and gracing the world with her talent, with her generosity of spirit, and with her love for her community.”
She included … “You can see it in whatever she does. From her music that provides voice to Black joy and Black discomfort, to her advocacy that needs justice for Black Lives. And no matter how big the phases get, I understand my woman isn’t pleased unless she’s sharing all that shine she has with the next generation.”
The video focused on Beyonce’s neighborhood work and humanitarian efforts, especially during the existing COVID-19 pandemic. It likewise included more shout-outs from her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, Tyler Perry and more.
Beyonce called her honor “lovely” and dedicated it to “all of my siblings out there, all of my sisters out there inspiring me, marching and fighting for modification.”
She closed by advising individuals to go out and vote to “continue to work to alter a racist and unequal system,” adding … “We need to vote like our life depends on it, due to the fact that it does.”
