Beyoncé reunites with Destiny's Child at Coachella, praises HBCUs

Beyoncé reunites with Destiny's Child at Coachella, praises HBCUs

The festival's music is eclectic, with a huge rang of genres on offer including rock, indie, electronica and hip hop.

On Saturday night, Beyoncé took the main stage at the music festival in Indio, California to perform her long-anticipated set. The star's performance was dubbed "legendary".

This comes a year after Beyoncé had to postpone her 2017 headlining Coachella slot due to her pregnancy with twins.

Destiny's Child, active from 1997 to 2006, included Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, LaTavia Roberson, LeToya Luckett and Farrah Franklin.

In all, the performance proved to be truly historic-and fans seem to agree, with many calling for the music festival to be renamed "Beychella".

Bey had been hyping up her performance all week, writing on Facebook, "I am so excited to see the BeyHive tonight at Coachella". According to Page Six, Beyoncé's team has been trying to tightly control which photos of her get published, and because it's Beyoncé, they're probably going to pull it off.

She did it! Beyonce invited Destiny's Child to join her for her wild Coachella performance!

Singer and performer Beyonce lit up the crowd at her debut performance at Coachella, a year after she was announced as a headliner. Taking the stage for the first time since the 2015 Stellar Awards, the threesome sang "Say My Name", "Soldier" and "Lose My Breath". She also belted out I Care, Partition, Baby Boy, Hold Up, and Check On It before her husband JAY-Z briefly joined her onstage for Deja Vu.

"I was supposed to perform at Coachella before but I ended up getting pregnant", Beyoncé said before finishing with Love On Top. So I had time to dream and dream and dream with two lovely souls in my belly. "I hope y'all enjoyed the show".
