More photos of Jay-Z and Beyonce with President Barack Obama during his fundraiser at the 40/40 Club have surfaced! And it looks like hip-hop’s first couple had a great time hangin’ with Barack Tuesday night up in NYC.
Tickets to attend the gala were sold at $40,000, which went toward the President’s campaign for re-election. All together, the Prez raised about $4 million – in one night!
Obama gave a great speech, the most quotable part coming when he told the crowd that he and Hov were so much alike:
“We both have daughters and our wives are more popular than we are. So, you know, we’ve got a little bond there. It’s hard but it’s okay.”
Beyonce, who looked stunning in a fire engine red dress, spoke about how proud she and Jay were to have had the honor to host his fundraiser:
“I can’t tell you how proud we are to host tonight’s event with President Obama,” Beyonce, 30, said while introducing Obama, 51. “We believe in his vision.”
Obama’s swag was definitely on a thousand-trillion that night! Check out more pics from the epic affair at the 40/40 Club in our gallery.
