Queen Bey feted the Democratic presidential nominee on Friday in Cleveland at the Get Out the Vote concert in epic style.
Of course, a big political statement deserves a statement shoe. Beyoncé hit the stage in Sophia Webster’s Kendra booties. The footwear retails for $750 and features brocade embroidery, a pointed-toe silhouette, zip closure and crystal-embellishments on a 4-inch block heel.
The Grammy winner performed her girl power anthems “Independent Women” and “Run the World (Girls),” among other hits. Her husband, Jay Z, also performed and voiced his support for Clinton.
Speaking to the crowd, Beyoncé recalled how she was inspired by Barack Obama becoming the first black U.S. president eight years ago, and that through Clinton, she’s eager to see a glass ceiling broken for women.
“I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country and know that her possibilities are limitless,” Beyoncé said, referencing her daughter, Blue Ivy. “We have to think about the futures of our daughters and sons and vote for someone who cares about them as much as we do. That is why I’m with her. If you’re ready for freedom, make some noise.”
Clinton took to the stage and praised Jay Z’s social activism through his music. “I want to thank Jay for addressing in his music some of the biggest challenges in our country: poverty, racism, the urgent need for criminal justice reform,” she said. “Jay memorably said something we should all recall: ‘Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther could walk … and Martin Luther walked so Barack Obama could run and Barack Obama ran so all the children could fly.’”
Jay Z also urged fans to vote for Clinton, telling the crowd: “I don’t have any ill will toward [Trump], but his conversation is divisive … he cannot be our president.”
Following the concert, Beyoncé changed into a Teespring “I’m With Her” white T-shirt and H&M distressed skinny jeans and posed for photos with Clinton backstage.
