Beyonce made history as the first African American woman to headline Coachella, and she killed it. 

 

The entire performance was flawless but one particular moment tugged at our heartstrings: the reunion with Destiny's Child.

 

For those who don't know Destiny's Child was comprised of Beyonce, Michelle Williams, and Kelly Rowland and they were THE girl power group of the time. Formed in 1997 in Houston, they were known for their songs "Bootylicious," "Soldier" "Independent Woman" and so many more.

Though the group split up, they stayed in touch over the years and recently reunited at Beyonce's iconic Super Bowl Halftime show. 

 

It was highly rumored that Queen B would bring Kelly and Michelle out with her to Coachella after a series of mysterious social media hints surfaced from all the women. 

I'd say I discovered my power after the first Destiny's Child album. The label didn't really believe we were pop stars. They underestimated us, and because of that, they allowed us to write our own songs and write our own video treatments. It ended up being the best thing, because that's when I became an artist and took control.

The performance was especially memorable since they introed the group with the clip from "Flawless" where Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie says, "We raise girls to each other as competitors. Not for jobs or for accomplishments...but for the attention of men. Feminist: the person who believes in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes."

 

Then the marching band chimes in and we see the silhouettes of the three members. The audience loses it.

 

"Lose Your Breath" starts playing, and they walk in sync down the runway. They also performed "Soldier" and "Say My Name" all with the perfect harmonies and choreography that made them famous.
