Beyoncé’s love and admiration for first lady Michelle Obama is no secret.
The “Single Lady” singer recently revealed a handwritten letter via her website that she penned for the first lady. In a video posted on Youtube, Beyonce recites the exact words of the letter.
“I wrote a letter ’cause I wanted her to know that I’m very grateful for everything she’s doing for our country and also for women around the world,” Beyonce said.
“I’m so in awe of Michelle Obama,” Beyonce added. “Everytime I see her, she inspires me, she empowers me, she encourages me to live a healthy lifestyle, to support our veterans.”
Michelle Obama thanked Beyonce on Twitter, “@Beyonce Thank you for the beautiful letter and for being a role model who kids everywhere can look up to,” the First Lady tweeted.
Last year Beyonce partnered with the First Lady on the “Let’s Move! Flash Workout” campaign for kids with obesity. The campaign was launched to inspire kids to be active and help fight obesity.
