No running away, Beyoncé turns 37 today

October 2, 2018

Beyoncé celebrates birthday number 37 today.

Even superstars’ mothers want to be the first to wish their children a happy birthday.

On Monday, Beyoncé’s proud mom, Tina Knowles, shared happy birthday greetings and a throwback photo to her daughter’s (obviously adorable) infancy on her Instagram account.

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:

Madonna.

Cher.

Taylor.

Beyoncé.

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.
