Jay Z, Destiny's Child, Blue Ivy, More Wish Beyoncé Happy Birthday With Song Dedications
What song reminds you most of Beyoncé? Is it "Drunk In Love"? "Single Ladies"? "Independent Woman"? Chances are, it's one of her songs, right? That is, unless you're a close personal friend of Bey's.
In celebration of her birthday, some of Queen Bee's closest family and friends all dedicated songs on her website "that narrate their most cherished moments with her."
So who dedicated what?
Her husband, Jay Z, served up Coldplay's "Yellow," saying, "This song reminds me of you and I on vacation. 'Look at the stars, look how they shine for you.' So many legendary nights. It represents vulnerability; it's us in our own world, away from work and totally lost in love. 'For you, I'll bleed myself dry.'"
Her daughter, Blue Ivy, dedicated "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid. She said, "Mommy you sung this to me all the time," leaving us asking how we can get to hear Beyoncé singing the Disney classic too.
Solange, her sister, gave a very sentimental dedication with "Holy Ghost" by Kim Burrell, saying, "I think about one of the best moments in my life. My sister, humming this with me softly, being the calming beautiful spirit she is, making everything that resided in that moment filled with love."
Beyoncé's Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams contributed as well, reminiscing over old times growing up and touring. Her parents, her nephew, her brother-in-law and a number of others also pitched in. See the full list here.
And while the First Lady, Michelle Obama, did not offer any song dedication, she did wish her friend a happy birthday on Twitter:
Happy birthday to the one and only, Queen ! Thank you for being a role model for young girls around the world, @Beyonce. -mo— The First Lady (@FLOTUS) September 4, 2015
