There’s just so many charitable things that she does that she doesn’t look for the press on it. She just does it from the heart.

One day I was actually at the Super Bowl and she was performing the National Anthem and I just cried because it was unbelievable that she’d done so many of the things she said she’d do.

Beyonce, in addition to being just a beautiful young woman, she’s been a role model and a powerful presence for young girls and women all around the world.  I’m very proud of her, very proud of the woman that she is, the role model she provides to so many women.  And I truly congratulate her tonight on all her success.
