Beyoncé Urges Fans To Get In Formation And Vote This November
(By Julia Brucculieri 10.17.16 for The Huffington Post)
Beyoncé has an important message for the Beyhive: VOTE.
During her performance at Tidal X: 1015 on Saturday night, the singer finished off her set by telling the crowd, “It can be easy to feel helpless and want to just block the world out, but doing nothing right now is not an option.”
“I know it seems like things are bad, but if you think they can’t get worse, just ask your grandparents,” she said, adding, “Remember Barack Obama is our president. You made that happen. Young people made that happen. We are not helpless. The fire is still burning. Please go out and vote this November.”
Finally, she urged fans to “get in formation” and use their voices to make a change.
Beyoncé has yet to formally endorse a candidate this election season, but she has attended at least one fundraiser for Hillary Clinton. The Grammy-winner also hung out with the Democratic presidential nominee’s husband, Bill Clinton, at this year’s “Made in America” concert tour.
