Beyonce brought band mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams on stage during her headline set at the festival in California recently.
The trio began their surprise performance with their 2004 hit Lose My Breath, followed by Say My Name and Soldier. It’s the first time they have appeared together since the Stellar Gospel Music Awards in 2015.
The 36-year-old singer’s show took a military theme, beginning with a rendition of her 2003 hit Crazy In Love played by a marching band.
The nearly two-hour set included quotes from civil rights activist Malcolm X and feminist author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, as well as samples of Nina Simone.
It also featured a rendition of Lift Every Voice and Sing, a song often referred to as the “Black American National Anthem”.
Beyonce’s set closed the second day of the three-day festival in Indio, California, which will end with Eminem.
