Beyoncé posed for photos with three women who survived the Boston marathon bombings earlier this year
Beyoncé met with three female survivors of the Boston marathon bombings earlier this week, after inviting them to join her backstage at one of her Mrs Carter shows.
The ‘inspirational’ trio, who each lost a leg during the atrocities, watched the songstress strut her stuff on stage, before popping behind the scenes for a special meet and greet.
Mery Daniel, Adrianne Haslet and Heather Abbot, who have all been fitted with prosthetic limbs, were all smiles as they met the kind-hearted superstar at the Boston’s TD Garden gig.
Later, Beyoncé took to Instagram to share the moment in a snap.
‘If someone had told me I would have half a leg basically at the age of 38 before this happened, I think I would never have believed it,’ Heather Abbot told ABC news after the Bombings in April.
I think I would have been devastated and I really haven’t had a moment yet of being devastated because I’ve gotten so much support. … It is a life-altering experience.’
Bey proved her pure star power during one her Mrs Carter gigs in Montreal earlier this week, when she got her long curls caught in a powerful fan.
The mishap happened as she snuck to the edge of the stage get to fans, but as she stood in front of an industrial fan, her long locks got tangled up.
Ever the professional, Beyoncé belted out famous hit Halo as security guards and stagehands rushed to free her from the device, in pitch-perfect style.
Afterwards, the songstress took to Instagram to joke about the incident, posting a picture with the handwritten words: ‘Gravity can’t begin to pull me out of the fan again.’ And it’s not the first time Bey has posted a handwritten gesture to fans.’
Good work, Bey.
