The one-time Destiny's Child singer wrote that "Michelle is the ultimate example of a truly strong African American woman.
"She is a caring mother, she's a loving wife, while at the same time, she is the FIRST LADY!!!! No matter the pressure, and the stress of being under the microscope -- she's humble, loving, and sincere. She builds and nurtures her family, while also looking out for so many millions in so many ways."
The 30-year-old Dreamgirl continued, “Michelle, thank you so much for every single thing that u do for us – I am proud to have my daughter grow up in a world where she has people like you to look up to.”
