World stop! Haven't you heard? It's Bey-Day — Beyoncé's 34th birthday — and while the megastar's friends, fans and fanatics have been showering her with birthday praises all over social media, Queen Bey's family did something extra special and original that is sure to touch her to the core.
Posted to Beyoncé's website is a collage of all of her close family and friends above the words, "In honor of her birthday, Beyoncé's loved ones dedicate the songs that narrate their most cherished moments with her." Then the beautiful messages began, and some of them are tear-jerkingly thoughtful.
Beginning the list is Mama Tina, whose selection was "Home" by Stephanie Mills. "I remember you singing at the Peoples' Workshop when you were just 9-years-old," she wrote. "You brought the house down and got a standing ovation and all." Slaying the stage was just in her DNA.
The beautiful messages and selections which followed included "Here I Go Again" by Smokey Robinson (Mathew Knowles, her father), "Holy Ghost" by Kim Burrell (Solange, her sister), "Happy" by Pharrell (Julez, her nephew), "What's the 411" by Mary J. Blige (Kelly Rowland, her sister — in Destiny), and many others, including her cousin Angie Beyince, Michelle Williams. However it was the kind words from her mother-in-law, Gloria Carter, who called her "my amazing daughter," and her husband, Jay Z, who selected "Yellow" by Cold Play as the moment they were "totally lost in love" that took the cake.
All of them were outdone, however, by princess Blue Ivy Carter, who rounded up the list with "Part of Your World" by Jodi Benson from The Little Mermaid, and her adorable message which read, "Mommy, you sung this to me all the time. Happy Birthday, Mommy!" The feels!
Now, that's love. Happy birthday, Beyoncé!
