We don’t remember what we got for our 22nd birthday, but we’re definitely wasn’t as cool as Shehnaz Kahn’s present this year. The student was down in front at Birmingham UK’s LG Arena for Beyonce‘s Mrs. Carter World Tour, which is already wayyyy better than any bday we’ve ever had. But Queen Bey had something even more special up her sleeve. She stopped in the middle of the concert sing “Happy Birthday,” to the breathless fan, who got it all on video!
Shehnaz apparently caught the singer’s attention with a handmade sign and birthday badge. “You got the sign and everything, what’s your name? How do you spell it?” Bey asked, before launching into an up-close and person rendition of the birthday classic. At least, it’s as personal as it can be in a packed auditorium! She soon returned to the spotlight, but not before kissing her young admirer’s hand. Coolest. Present. Ever.
The birthday girl posted the video to her Instagram page, where it predictably went insane. “BEYONCE SINGING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME,” she captioned the video. “My life has been made in every sense, literally what is life? Thank you so much @beyonce.” Soon she was inundated with requests for interviews and more deets on the unbelievable night. “Incredible, when is that ever going to happen again?” she told the Birmingham Mail. “I can’t believe she stopped the show for me. I was leaning over the barrier holding her hand and not realizing the camera was recording, everyone around me was going crazy.”
Beyonce has been making plenty of individual dreams come true over the course of her tour. Head up to the gallery above for more of the most Awwwwwww Inspiring concert moments!
