Blue Ivy’s mom is cooler than your mom.
That was the message Beyonce basically sent on Saturday when she decided to make a surprise appearance at her daughter’s elementary school benefit event in Los Angeles. The “Formation” singer gave a live performance for the school’s faculty, parents and others in attendance.
US Weekly reported that Beyonce sang several songs, including “Crazy in Love,” “Halo” and even a cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”
Several benefit attendees uploaded videos of the performance to Instagram. Beyonce went all out for the event, taking the stage in a tiger-print black and gold dress with her backup dancers in tow.
Can you say, Bey for PTA President?

The outing was Beyonce’s first public outing since her much talked about performance at Super Bowl 50 last month, according to Complex.
Blue Ivy was not seen in any of the videos, but in one clip, Beyonce asks for audience participation, and children’s voices can clearly be heard singing along to “I Will Always Love You.”

Blue Ivy has had quite a few amazing experiences thanks to her mother in her four short years on Planet Earth, according to US Weekly.
Beyonce shared some photos of her daughter dancing with Chris Martin backstage before the Super Bowl halftime show. Coldplay’s lead singer is seen twirling Blue around in a circle while she wears a tutu.
The benefit concert was probably good practice for Beyonce, as she will be embarking on her “Formation World Tour” in late April. Shows will run from April 27 to July 31 and take Bey across the United States and to Canada, the U.K. and other parts of Europe. Roughly half of the shows are already sold out.
