Hillary Clinton backed by Beyoncé and Jay Z in battleground state of Ohio

The celebrity cavalry arrived for Hillary Clinton on Friday, as she took the stage with music icons Jay Z and Beyoncé in Cleveland, Ohio.

The power couple performed at a get-out-the-vote rally four days before the election, lighting up a crowd of thousands in the hopes of motivating them to get to the polls. Rapper Jay Z hosted a similar concert for Barack Obama in 2008 and declared to those in attendance in the battleground state: “Ohio, we are on the doorsteps of history.”

Adding he had “no ill will” toward Donald Trump, Jay Z, whose legal name is Shawn Carter, said the Republican nominee’s “conversation is divisive”.

“That’s not an evolved soul for me, so he cannot be my president. He cannot be our president.”

“Once you divide us, you weaken us,” he added.

The artist and producer shared the stage with Beyoncé, who elicited an unparalleled reception from the crowd of 10,000 people. The global superstar performed hits that included her feminist anthems Run the World (Girls) and Diva.

“There was a time when a woman’s opinion did not matter,” Beyoncé, a self-proclaimed feminist, said.

Urging the audience to cast their ballots, she stated her support for Clinton in no uncertain terms: “I’m with her.”
