On the eve of election day, superstar singer Beyoncé took to her Tumblr in a last ditch attempt to sway any undecided voters to join team Obama, as she posted an open letter to the current president describing him as being “the leader to take us from where we are to where we need to be.”

Husband Jay-Z has also been helping the Obama campaign wherever he can – most notably at the Made In America festival that was held in September – and now Beyoncé’s joined in for the final push. The open letter talks of Obama’s character being inspiring, citing him as the reason her own daughter, Blue Ivy, and nephew can grow up to be whatever they want to be.

Beyoncé has been quite present throughout Obama’s four years in the White House, as she sang Etta James’ “At Last” at the inauguration ball for the president’s first dance with wife Michelle Obama, as well as helping Michelle in her Let’s Move fitness campaign.
