Janelle Monae Performs At President Obama's Chicago Campaign Fundraising Event [VIDEO]

I'm so in love with Janelle Monae.  And say what you want about President Obama, but this great leader also happens to have amazing taste in music.  Recently, he invited Janelle to perform at his presidential campaign fundraiser rally at the University of Illinois at Chicago and she killed it as always.

Watch the performance below, and hit the jump to read Ms. Mayweather's reaction to the entire experience and to see President Obama thank her for her talent!

“I was deeply honored to be invited by the President to perform at the rally in Chicago at the University of Illinois at Chicago. It was an amazing feeling to be amongst so many people, young and old, black, white, red, disabled, all united, eager to help support a man who has ended the war in Iraq, gotten rid of “don’t ask don’t tell”- allowing anyone to serve this country regardless of who you love, made sure women were not paid less than men merely because they are women, doubled pell grants, given 2.5 million young people health insurance, and has created a law that recognizes that crimes based on sexual orientation, gender identity, race or disability aren’t just any crime- they’re hate crimes that deserve justice. These are all things he said he’d do before he was elected and did them. There are more important accomplishments that can be added to this list. I strongly believe our nation should continue upon this path, bringing justice to all and change where needed. President Obama remains the candidate of hope and change, and he will continue to move our country forward, bringing even more change if re-elected."  -Janelle Monae
