Beyoncé got a special birthday surprise that had the #beyhive all abuzz. Some of her closest friends and family channeled the singer’s “Texas ‘Bama” swag to celebrate her 36th birthday in a series of striking black and white images on a her website.
With a message reading “Happy Birthday Beyoncé From Your Family And Friends”, 18 women got in “formation,” channelling the now infamous look featuring wide-brimmed hats, pigtail braids and over-the-top statement necklaces. Among those who posed it up were former first lady Michelle Obama, tennis phenom Serena Williams, Kelly Rowland, Blue Ivy and, of course, Mama Tina Knowles.
The site also called fans to join Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD charity in supporting Houston relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Harvey which was the strongest hurricane to hit the United States in over a decade. Donations will go towards long-term revitalization and immediate needs, including cots, blankets, pillows, baby formula, wipes, feminine products and wheelchairs.
