On January 7, 2012, Beyonce gave birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter in New York. Her first performance after giving birth was “Revel Presents: Beyonce Live” at the opening of the hotel Revel at Atlantic City. In September, Beyonce and Jay-Z raised about $4 million in support of Obama’s re-election campaign. Immediately after the Sandy Hook school shooting, Beyonce and other celebrities produced “Demand A Plan,” which is a video campaign to encourage the government to change gun control laws. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
