Beyonce will campaign for Hillary Clinton at a get-out-the-vote concert in Ohio on Friday.

Sources told CBS News that Beyonce will be joining her husband and Rapper Jay Z in performing at the concert.

The rally will be held at Cleveland State University as Clinton looks to make one last push to get young voters out to the polls on Election Day.

Jay Z’s appearance had already been announced, but the addition of the pop-R&B star makes the Cleveland event that much more star-studded, which could give Clinton some much needed momentum in Ohio as she enters into the final weekend of her presidential campaign.

According to CBS News, the concert is reportedly aiming mainly at millennials and African-American voters in Cuyahoga County, where Clinton will need to create some separation from Donald Trump, who is currently leading in the Ohio polls.

Clinton has created a correlation between she and Beyonce in the past, expressing how much she reveres the 20-time Grammy winner.

“I want to be as good a President as Beyonce is a performer,” Clinton said at a town hall in Iowa in December, The New York Daily News noted.

This won’t be the first time Jay Z and Beyonce have gotten involved on the campaign trail. The duo performed for President Obama’s rallies in the past, and have also attended different political events with the Obamas in recent years, according to Hollywood Life.

Friday’s rally will also include stars like Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, The National, and John Legend.
