The singer talks about her daughter's future career prospects in a new Chime for Change video
Beyoncé has revealed that she tells daughter Blue Ivy every day that she can grow up to be president of the United States.
Speaking in an inspiring new video as part of the Chime for Change campaign, the singer talks about female empowerment and how she is already encouraging her daughter to aim for the top, even though she is only one-year-old.
Beyoncé says in the clip: ‘I’m telling my daughter every day, you know you can be president, you know it’s possible. I know she has no idea why I’m saying that, but at one-year-old, I’m like, you know you can be president.’
The songstress, who is the co-founder and artistic director of the Gucci founded girls’ and women’s empowerment initiative, joins a star-studded line-up in the new video appearing alongside co-founders Salma Hayek and Gucci’s Frida Giannini.
Other famous faces who have added their support to the campaign include actresses Blake Lively, Halle Berry, Zoe Saldana, Freida Pinto, Jada Pinkett Smith, Olivia Wilde and Evan Rachel Wood, as well as singers Katy Perry and John Legend.
The video comes just a few weeks after it was announced that Beyoncé will headline a music concert for Chime for Change this summer at London’s Twickenham Stadium. The gig, which is called Sound of Change Live and also sees the likes of Ellie Goulding, Florence and the Machine, Haim and Rita Ora performing, will take place on 1st June and be broadcast globally to raise funds and awareness for projects supporting women around the world.
