Jay Z, Beyonce, Chance The Rapper Are For Hillary In Campaign Video
Now, a video from that concert has been released courtesy of Tidal.
“For so long our voice wasn’t part of the process,” Jay Z says in the beginning of the video. “Communities were underserved because our voice wasn’t being heard.”
The video then transitions to Beyonce, with the singer saying “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 making history.”
Both Beyonce and Chance offer their thoughts on having daughters, and how they want their children to see Hillary as the America’s next president.
The video then ends with Jay Z introducing Hillary as she takes the stage.
“I would like to introduce to you, the next president of the United States, Ms. Hillary Clinton,” says Jay Z, as the audience chants Hillary’s name.
Today (Monday) Chance and his nonprofit organization SocialWorks will host a free concert in Chicago to encourage the city’s youth to vote.
There will be performances from Twin Peaks, Malcolm London (who just dropped his album OPIA), Chance’s younger brother Taylor Bennett, Eryn Allen Kane, oddCouple, Stefan Ponce and more. In addition, Chance and SocialWorks will lead groups to the nearest polling station to vote.
Originally taking place at Virgin Hotels Chicago, the event will now be happening at Petrillo Music Shell (Grant Park, 235 S Columbus Dr) from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. CST.
