Beyonce oversaw the on-stage wedding proposal of two of her dancers during one of her concerts.
During her show at St Louis’ America Center stadium on Saturday (September 10), Beyonce interrupted her performance of ‘Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)’ to introduce choreographer John Silver.
Silver then proposed to his girlfriend, dancer Ashley Everett, to cheers from the crowd. Beyonce jokingly asked Everett: “Are you OK to continue?” following the proposal.
The show marked Beyonce’s return to playing live after a month off following the end of her European tour. She had celebrated her 35th birthday in between, when Chance The Rapper and Coldplay gave her birthday greetings from the stage when Beyonce and Jay Z went to Made In America festival in Philadelphia.
Beyonce then went on her to her 1970s-themed fancy dress birthday party in honour of US TV show Soul Train, which saw guests including Chance The Rapper, Usher, Puff Daddy and Beyonce’s former Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams in fancy dress during Swizz Beatz’ DJ set.
The day after her birthday, Beyonce had to postpone the US tour’s first date in New Jersey due to throat problems, meaning the St Louis show saw her comeback.
There were no signs of any voice issues at the two-hour show, which featured two versons of ‘Crazy In Love’.
