On Saturday, Beyonce posted a message to her fans on Facebook, promising a “special” headlining set at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA. and she did it as she performed for throngs of screaming fans after a year’s wait.
For this occasion, Beyonce got the band Destiny’s Child back together at Coachella.
On the group’s 20th anniversary, Destiny’s Child reunited for a special performance during Beyonce Knowles’ headlining set at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival.
The R&B trio, featuring Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, last performed together during the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show.
Their Coachella set included three numbers: “Lose My Breath,” “Say My Name” and “Soldier.”
“Y’all ready Coachella?,” she asked the crowd as she opened her set, becoming the first woman of color to headline the music festival in Indio, California. Excited fans had a new nickname for this year’s festival: Beychella. Other headliners included the Weeknd and Eminem.
“Coachella, thank you for allowing me to be the first black woman to headline,” Beyonce said, before singing “Run the World (Girls).”
Beyonce’s epic desert performance, which featured over 100 dancers and a drumline, also saw a cameo from husband Jay-Z.
