After the singer wrapped up her Mrs. Carter Show concert in Boston Tuesday night, the superstar showed her support for victims of the tragic Boston Marathon bombings by inviting three strong survivors backstage.
Fans Mery Daniel, Adrianne Haslet and Heather Abbott—all of whom lost a leg in the attack—enjoyed a meet and greet with JAY Z‘s missus as they smiled and posed for pics with Bey at Boston’s TD Garden.
The strong survivors have all publicly documented their long road to recovery, candidly speaking about their struggles after being fitted with prosthetics and learning to walk again.
“Picking things up off the floor, getting food, things that I used to be able to do independently now I no longer can do,” 31-year-old Daniel told People magazine in June.
But last night, the inspirational trio took a moment to forget about their hardships, beaming with Bey as they showed off how far they’ve come since the April 15 tragedy.
“If someone had told me I would have half a leg basically at the age of 38 before this happened, I think I would never have believed it,” Abbott told ABC News after the attack. “I think I would have been devastated and I really haven’t had a moment yet of being devastated because I’ve gotten so much support…It is a life-altering experience.”
Beyoncé is currently on the North American leg of her Mrs. Carter Show world tour; she’s set to perform at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia Thursday night.
On Monday, the 31-year-old music legend performed in Montreal, where her hair got stuck in a fan while she was singing her hit “Halo.”
But being the consummate professional, Queen B kept on singing and even took to Instagram after the show to post a video poking fun at the hairy situation.
The performer has also been busy showing her support for Trayvon Martin‘s family in light of the controversial George Zimmerman trial verdict, recently attending a peaceful protest in NYC with hubby JAY Z.Follow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
