VIDEO: Beyonce praises First Lady in re-election campaign video

This past spring, Beyonce posted an enthusiastic note of admiration to US First Lady Michelle Obama, praising her as "the ultimate example of a truly strong African American woman."

The First Lady acknowledged the note with a tweet of her own, writing, “Thank you for the beautiful letter and for being a role model who kids everywhere can look up to. –mo”

Now, the pop star’s love letter has been turned into a video as part of the re-election campaign for President Barack Obama.

Before Beyonce reads her letter, she introduces it by saying "I wrote a letter to the First Lady because 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 has been an active supporter of the Obama camp over the years: she performed during the inauguration celebrations for The President in January 2009 and, this past May, the First Lady took daughters Sacha and Malia to Beyonce's concert in Atlantic City, N.J.
