All good things come to an end, and such is the case with Beyonce’s mega successful, Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.
As the concert came to a close, Beyonce took a moment to speak directly to her fans. In the middle of her monologue, tears began to fall, and devolved into an all-out “ugly” cry.
Beyonce tearfully shared with the audience:
If you all don’t know, tonight makes 132 shows. Tonight is the last show of the Mrs. Carter Show. We started a year ago and I want to say this has been such a journey.
In the past year, we’ve been through so much together — the Super Bowl, shooting the videos, all of these shows. When I first started the tour, my baby was not even walking yet
I just want you to know that I am so lucky. I’m giving y’all an ugly cry! Thank y’all again. Thank you for allowing me to have a career. And when I fall, you lift me up. When I’m hungry, you feed me. And I just want to give you my light. I dedicate this song to you guys.
Beyonce’s impromptu speech was caught in its entirety on camera. Watch here:
