“I can’t tell you how proud we are to host tonight’s event with President Obama,” said Beyonce, in a stunning red cocktail dress and blond curls.
“We believe in his vision.”
A crowd of about 100 supporters shelled out $40,000 each to share space with Bey, Jay & the POTUS and he returned the couple’s grand gesture by giving Beyonce the ultimate compliment.

As Obama spoke briefly to the crowd, he compared the singer to his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, cracking a joke about how he and Jay-Z play second fiddle to their top notch women.
“We both have daughters. And our wives are more popular than we are. So– you know. So we’ve got a little bond there. It’s hard, but it’s OK.”
“Beyonce could not be a better role model for my girls,” Obama added, thanking the star couple for their friendship and joking that Michelle and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, were upset they couldn’t be present.
The couple reportedly raised about $4 million for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign that evening and graciously posed with the people who made it possible.
One photo in particular captured the moment with Jay-Z, Beyonce, President Barack Obama and a supporter brushing the dirt off their shoulders an ode to one of Jay-Z’s hit songs…
Major props to Jay & Bey for doing their part to assist Obama’s reelection campaign!
