Beyoncé posted a handwritten note on her website expressing her support, respect and even adoration for President Barack Obama on the eve of today’s election.

“Everyday we see your heart and character, inspiring all of us to give more of ourselves,” the singer wrote to open the letter, before going on to call Obama “the leader to take us from where we are to where we need to be.” 

At the close of her short missive, Beyoncé wrote: “You are the reason my daughter and nephew will grow up knowing that they can truly be ANYTHING they want to be.” 

Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z have both been active in the president’s re-election campaign. The couple hosted Obama at a fundraiser in New York City, while just yesterday Hov joined the president and Bruce Springsteen at a rally in Ohio, where he switched up the lyrics to his classic “99 Problems,” declaring, “I got 99 problems, but Mitt ain’t one.”
