Beyonce won big on Sunday night but the new mother, who reportedly had her twins earlier this month, was not present to accept her honor at the BET Awards.
When it was announced that she won the viewer’s choice award, Chloe x Halle – the young duo signed to Beyonce – recited a speech given to them from the pop star. The note read: ‘Thank you BET for this award and your tremendous support of Lemonade. This has been a journey of love, of celebrating our culture, honoring the past, and approaching the present and future with hope and resolve.’ ‘Thank you to my mother Tina Knowles-Lawson for being my biggest, biggest teacher and consistent influence,’ the letter continued. ‘Thank you to my entire family for so much love. And thanks to all the fans, my Beyhive, for riding with me. I love and appreciate you. From, Beyonce.’
