The superstar turns 37 today.
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter likely will manage to celebrate in some epic way, as she and husband Jay-Z (Shawn) Carter take a short break from their “On the Run II” tour.
The mom of three and glamour queen has, along with her husband, built a billion-dollar musical empire.
The couple also have established a charitable foundation that is helping to provide college scholarships to deserving teens in tour stop cities.
A Houston, Texas native, Beyoncé’s career began as a child, performing in singing and dancing competitions. In the late 1990s, she fronted the popular rhythm and blues all-female group Destiny’s Child .
She soon joined the list of celebrities referred to with – and known by – a single name:
She’s since gone on to achieve a wildly successful career as a solo artist and with her husband.
Her birthday is an unofficial holiday for her fans, many of whom posted greetings on social media with #BeyDay.
Wherever she is today, Beyoncé may be enjoying some rare free time on her birthday.
The “On The Run II” tour made a stop in Miami on Aug. 31, and will resume Sept. 11 in Arlington, Texas.
