Beyoncé Celebrates Her Homecoming Special With Grambling State University
Beyoncé recently celebrated her Netflix special with the help of Grambling State University. After Bey’s Homecoming hit the streaming service King Bey brought the Louisiana HBCU’s band members to L.A. to celebrate her #HomecomingWeekend.
Bey posed for photos with the Marching Tiger band who accompanied her to Coachella and performed privately for guests like Travis Scott, Karrueche and Winnie Harlow.
Bey’s #HomecomingWeekend was presented in partnership with Adidas and Beyonce’s Ivy Park.
Bey already has ties to the HBCU, last year her BeyGood Foundation awarded a $25,000 scholarship to Grambling State University Mass Communication graduate student, Cletus Emokpae.
Congrats to Grambling!

First of all Happy Resurrection Sunday!!!! Now let’s talk about what he’s done!!!!! This is by-far one of this hardest secrets I’ve had to keep 😩!! But I knew a moment like this would be in my future if I continued to just receive it!! It wasn’t just me tho, my entire life people have been speaking @beyonce into my life and it feels like just yesterday I met @kimmiegeedotcom and did an interview with @ashleycmeverett in 2014 (HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY QUEEN BTW!!!🎉🎉) Now to be able to say I performed 5 feet from QueenBey herself as she cheered me on is only an opportunity put together by the lord and it only made me even more hungry to officially #tour with her one day. #GRAMFAM #GSGSGSGSUUUUUU #WhenYourSupportSystemStandsTenToesDownBehindYou #ITAINTOVER
