Jay Z Supports Hillary Clinton With Free Concert in Cleveland
By Sophie Schillaci
Jay Z is with her.
The 46-year-old rapper is showing his support for Hillary Clinton by performing at a Get Out the Vote concert event in Cleveland, Ohio, just days before the election. A press release promises that Jay will be joined by "special guests" at the Nov. 4 show, during which he'll "encourage unity" and urge Ohioans to cast their ballot for the Democratic Presidential candidate.
The Brooklyn native, along with wife Beyonce, have already attended fundraisers benefiting Clinton's campaign. In September, Bey was spotted chatting with Clinton's husband, President Bill Clinton, at the Made in America Festival in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Additionally, the couple has long supported and maintained a friendship with President Barack and Michelle Obama. In fact, Jay hosted similar events to support Obama during his 2008 and 2012 campaigns, while Beyonce famously sang Etta James' "At Last" at his inauguration ball.
Free tickets to Jay Z's Cleveland concert will be distributed on a first-come first-served basis. A venue for the show has yet to be announced.
