Singer and celebrity Beyoncé Knowles will host a fund-raiser for President Barack Obama’s campaign at husband and rapper Jay-Z’s club “40/40” next week as the president campaigns in New York City, CNN confirmed Wednesday.

The September 18 event will be similar to previous celebrity-hosted Obama fund-raisers, where people who donate to the president’s campaign will be entered for a chance to win tickets to the event.

A post on Beyoncé’s Facebook page Wednesday reads:

“Beyoncé is hosting President Barack Obama in New York City and you could join them! Make a donation to the President’s campaign here and you will be automatically entered to win this once in a lifetime opportunity for you and a guest.”

During an interview event hosted by the Savannah College of Art and Design over the weekend, Andre Leon Talley, who accompanied a very late Beyonce on the red carpet at this year’s Met Gala, dished on why the star was the last one to arrive.

“Beyonce was not slated to come,” he said. “She decided to come last minute when the dress arrived at her house. She tried it on and then she said, ‘Okay, I have to come.’ She did arrive at 8:55 and the ball had already started, but it didn’t matter because she is Beyonce.”

At the recent Met Gala, Beyonce showed off her incredible post-baby body in a sheer black embroidered Givenchy Haute Couture gown with a purple ombre feathered train.
