Beyoncé headlines Coachella, is inevitably incredible

Beyoncé became the first black woman to headline the Coachella music festival in California on Saturday, performing with guest appearances from her husband, Jay Z, her sister, Solange Knowles, and a reunited Destiny's Child.

The performance included a brass band, which Rep.

Beyoncé's set featured selections from her most recent album, Lemonade, as well as songs dating back to the start of her career in the late 1990s.
