'I Tell My Daughter You Can Be President' - Beyoncé Teams Up With Blake Lively & Halle Berry In Latest Chime For Change Video

16 April 2013 by

Back in February when Beyoncé, Salma Hayek and Frida Giannini announced they had teamed up to co-found a new campaign for female empowerment called Chime for Change, founded by Gucci, we didn't think you could get a more impressive group of gals. But now Bey has recruited some of the hottest A Listers, including Katy Perry, Halle Berry and Blake Lively, to speak in a video for the campaign about female empowerment.

Beyoncé's daughter Blue Ivy might only be one years old, but that doesn't stop Bey from teaching her who runs the world. She said in the video: 'I am telling my daughter every day you know you can be president. You know it’s possible and I know how she has no idea why I’m saying that. But at one year old I’m like, you know you can be president.'

In the video Blake Lively, Evan Rachel Wood, Freida Pinto, Halle Berry, John Legend, Katy Perry, Ziggy Marley, Olivia Wilde and Zoe Saldana all discuss how social media can be vital to help the empowerment of girls and women.

Avid tweeter Katy Perry said: 'If I feel strongly about something the whole world will know in a matter of seconds.' Halle Berry comments that 'with the click of a button we can be connected around the world,' while Evan Rachel Wood talks about how social media can rally people together.

You might also remember that this summer on June the 1st there will be the ultimate concert, The Sound of Change Live. Which will be headlined by Ms Beyonce Knowles, and will also have performances by Florence and the Machine, to Haim, Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea. This is one event which is definitely going to be trending on social media.
