Beyonce Surprises Crowd As She And Jay Z Campaign For Hillary Clinton At Get-Out-The-Vote Concert In Cleveland

Queen Bey is definitely with her.

The 35-year-old singer shocked the crowd with a surprise performance at the Get-Out-the-Vote concert in support of Hillary Clinton in Cleveland, Ohio on Friday night.

Bey came out in “Formation” with a performance of the hit song, dressed in a black-and-white polka dot pantsuit and accompanied by a team of backup dancers dressed in blue pantsuits — notice a theme here? — wearing “I’m With Her” T-shirts.

“I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country and know that her possibilities are limitless,” the Grammy winner told the crowd.

“There was a time when a woman’s opinion did not matter… less than 100 years ago, women did not have the right to vote. Look how far we’ve come from having no voice to being on the brink of history by electing the first woman president,” Bey said. “But we have to vote. The world looks to us as a progressive country that needs change.”

In accordance with the night’s theme of girl power, Beyonce performed “Run the World (Girls)” before closing with Clinton’s famous 1992 “baked cookies” line.

“I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession,” Clinton’s quote read on the giant screen.

Clinton also took to Instagram to share an adorable snap of herself with Beyonce and Jay Z from before the big show, which saw performances by both Mr. and Mrs. Carter.

“Beyoncé & Jay Z & Hillary & You?,” the pic’s caption read.
