Bey, who has been performing since she was a child, starting putting her stamp on the music world with Destiny’s Child before launching her solo career 14 years ago.

This weekend, music lovers were treated to JAY-Z’s sixth annual “Made In America” festival. The concert featured performances from JAY-Z, The Chainsmokers and a surprise appearance from Philly native Meek Mill.
However, it was JAY-Z who stole the show by taking a moment to wish his wife the happiest of birthdays. During his set, The “4:44” rapper said, “Shout out to Beyoncé. Beautiful Bey is in the house tonight. Happy Birthday my love.” The crowd then sang “Happy Birthday” to Bey.
Beyoncé stood next to former Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams, nodding her head to the beat as the crowd wished her well.
