Beyonce's birthday, September 4, should should not only be memorialized as Beyoncé Day in Houston, but should also be acknowledged as a national holiday. Queen B turns 39 this year and it's important that we reflect on everything she's given us in her 30-plus-year music career.
From her early days in Girls Tyme, to her time with Destiny's Child, we've always known Beyoncé was a force to be reckoned with. She's given us so much over the past 30 years: countless hit songs, gorgeous photo shoots and well-executed surprise visual albums.

There are so many things that make Queen Bey great. For starters, her 30-plus-year career is loaded with record-breaking accomplishments. She possesses the 2019 NAACP Image Award for Entertainer of the Year, is the most nominated woman in Grammy history, and has won 28 MTV Video Music Awards.
For many, Beyoncé has made the seemingly impossible, possible. From her surprise releases to the way albums are packaged, she has set the standard for what artists can do to diversify their style and delivery of music to fans.
Beyoncé also uses her status to bring awareness to social issues. This year alone, she's managed to help Houston by offering coronavirus testing in minority communities. The initiative provided free test kits, personal protective equipment and household supplies to the Houston area. In addition to that, the proceeds from Beyoncé's remix of Megan Thee Stallion's song, "Savage," went to the Bread of Life organization in the city.

The secret behind all of her accomplishments? Beyoncé is charitable as much as she is fearless when it comes to her career. She does what other artists aren’t willing to do. She tests the waters with new ideas, and never fails to give back.
While I'm no musical genius, she's inspired me to be the truest version of myself. She gives her fans unwavering faith that empowers us all and makes us all believe in ourselves.
The Bey hive is likely wondering what's to come for the musical powerhouse. Is a new creative album on the horizon? Who knows. But while we're waiting, let's erect a statue of Beyoncé the size of the San Jacinto monument in the heart of Third Ward.
Because one day isn't enough to encapsulate this force of a woman.
