And in one of her biggest moments of the night, Bey formally endorsed Clinton and gave a heartfelt speech about the true difference your vote makes for women in this election:
‘There was a time when a woman’s opinion did not matter. If you were black, white, Mexican, Asian, Muslim, educated, poor or rich, if you were a woman, it 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 making history again by electing the first woman president. Yes! But we have to vote. The world looks to us as a progressive country that leads change. Eight years ago, I was so inspired to know that my nephew, a young black child, could grow up knowing his dreams could be realized by witnessing a black president in office. And now we have the opportunity to create more change. I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country, and know that her possibilities are limitless.
‘We have to think about the future of our daughters, our sons, and vote for someone who cares for them as much as we do. And that is why I’m with her. If you are ready for freedom, make some noise.’
“I want to thank Beyoncé for showing the world we are stronger when we stand up for each other!” – @HillaryClinton

And if you recall, Beyoncé once made a speech in October urging young people to vote at her Tidal performance.
