The 'Lemonade' singer will join husband Jay Z in Cleveland on Nov. 4.

Beyonce will lend her powerful voice to Hillary Clinton’s election campaign.

The “Single Ladies” singer is likely to join her husband Jay Z onstage at Cleveland’s "Get Out The Vote" show on Friday (Nov. 4), just four days before the 2016 election, according to an article published by CBS.

Billboard reached out to a Beyonce spokesperson for comment.

Both Jay Z and Beyonce have backed Clinton in the past, attending fundraisers for the Democratic nominee. Though a high-profile appearance in Ohio, with the election so close and tight, is timed for maximum effect.

A huge turnout in the African American community for Clinton in the swing state of Ohio could be a crucial victory in the race against Republican Party representative Donald Trump, political observers say.

The Clinton campaign is making a concerted push for Ohioans to cast votes early, notes CBS, which first reported Beyonce’s addition to the lineup.

Jay Z has been drumming up excitement for the show. The rapper and businessman shared a rare tweet ahead of the concert, “11/4 Cleveland. Let's make history (again)," he typed. "Thank you to the incredible artist dedicating their time this Friday!"

As Clinton’s campaign makes its final push in the battleground states, the politician has showed off a support cast featuring the music community's top guns. A series of events dubbed "Love Trumps Hate" stars Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and Jon Bon Jovi, among others, while The National, Cher, James Taylor and many more are getting behind the presidential hopeful. Superstar British singer Adele has publicly endorsed Clinton's bid, even though she doesn't have voting rights. "I can't vote, but I am 100 percent for Hillary Clinton. I love her," she told fans at a recent concert.
