It was a particularly emotional night for Beyonce as she celebrated the launch of Tyler Perry’s new movie studios at the weekend, with the singer admitting she ‘couldn’t stop crying’.
The Single Ladies hitmaker joined the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Halle Berry and Will Smith to celebrate the opening of Tyler’s historic production studios in Atlanta , Georgia on Saturday evening.
And Beyonce, 38, admits she was completely overwhelmed by the momentous occasion.
In a rare and heartfelt Instagram post about the event, the singer wrote: ‘Happy Sunday. Congratulations to Tyler Perry on the opening of his studios.
‘I could feel our ancestors’ presence. Surrounded by my heroes, I watched Denzel, Queen Oprah, Spike, Whoopi, Sir Poitier, Will, Halle , Dame Cicely and our angels John Singleton and Diahann Carroll honored. The Armand de Brignac crashed against each soundstage as fireworks lit up the sky. Generations of blood, sweat and tears, success, excellence and brilliance.’
She continued: ‘It makes me so proud, so full, I could not stop crying. Thank you my Virgo brother for so much love and passion put into every detail. My prayer today is that you will take it all in. You inspire me to dream even bigger.’
Erm, yes to more Beyonce captions please.
Beyonce was joined by her husband Jay Z at the party as well as her mother Tina Knowles Carter, while she also reunited with her Destiny’s Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, inside the party.
The Halo singer seemed to be in particularly high spirits – happy tears aside – following the news that her father Mathew Knowles had battled breast cancer.
Mathew, who used to manage Destiny’s Child, revealed that he had been diagnosed with the disease but fortunately, his daughters Beyonce and Solange Knowles, had tested negative for the BRCA2 gene.
Tyler, 50, has earned much acclaim and applause for his new movie studios, which boasts a staggering 12 soundstages each named after the black actors and actresses who inspired his career.
The studios sit on 330-acres of land that was previously a Confederate army base.
