After making Grammys history, Beyoncé is celebrating the accomplishments of other women also changing the game in the industry.
On her website, the superstar paid homage to the great entertainers and athletes 'who rose to the occasion in delivering stand out feats that made us all shine.'
Her list consists of Michaela Coel, UCLA gymnast Hallie Mossett, Megan Thee Stallion, Viola Davis, Michelle Williams, Cynthia Erivo, Catherine O'Hara, Kelly Rowland, Mariah Carey, Issa Rae, Cardi B, Andra Day, Misty Copeland, Taraji P. Henson, track star Allyson Felix, Serena Williams, Adele, Chloe x Halle, Naomi Osaka, and Solange Knowles.
Beginning her tribute, the superstar quoted Maya Angelou: 'The question is not how to survive, but how to thrive with passion, compassion, humour and style.' Beyoncé then acknowledged the women's achievements, writing, 'Their passion and brilliance shone on courts, zoom stages, streaming services, television, books, dance and song. They gave us joy and provided escapism in the midst of an overwhelming year.'
Beyonce has been honouring standout women across several fields throughout past month. In addition to paying tribute to Rule Breakers including Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Stacey Abrams, Janet Mock, and Jane Fonda, she shined a light on Truth Sayers like Michelle Obama, Tarana Burke, Oprah Winfrey, Lena Waithe, and Amanda Gorman.
The singer is also celebrating groundbreaking achievements of her own after becoming the woman with the most Grammy Awards in history last week. Taking to the stage to accept her record-breaking 28th Grammy for 'Black Parade', she said, 'As an artist I believe it's my job and all of our jobs to reflect the times. It's been such a difficult time. So I wanted to uplift, encourage, and celebrate all of the beautiful Black queens and kings that continued to inspire me and inspire the whole world.'
