Today, international sensation, Beyonce Knowles-Carter, turns 36. What better way to say 'Happy Birthday' to Bey without taking to social media. The most discussed homage to the Queen was done by former First Lady, Michelle Obama. Michelle and Beyonce have the kind of relationship that will last a lifetime, despite the age difference. If you recall, Beyonce' husband, Sean "Jay-Z" Carter, heavily supported and became fast friends with former president, Barack Obama. So it was no surprise that Beyonce and Michelle developed a close friendship over the years. Michelle even
came to Bey's 2016 birthday party. 

Take a look at some of the post from Instagram in honor of Beyonce's birthday.

Even Beyonce's father gave an emotional message to Bey.

In addition to the many shoutouts on social media, many close friends and family members channeled Bey's iconic "Formation" look in a wide-brimmed black hat, long braids and massive bling. You can view this on Beyonce's official website, with each woman recreating the same iconic look from the singer’s “Formation” music video. The notable are tennis star (and new mom) Serena Williams and BeyoncĂ©’s former Destiny’s Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland also participated in the tribute, as did BeyoncĂ©’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter, mom Tina Knowles Lawson, husband JAY-Z’s mom, Gloria Carter, and his grandmother, Hattie White.
