Tina Knowles, the mother of famous daughters Beyonce and Solange Knowles, writes an open letter (via TIMES) to her two biological daughters, along with Kelly Rowland and her niece Angie Beyince. In honor of Mother’s Day, the newly married Tina writes why each of them are so special.
I have four incredible daughters. Writing this brought to mind all the ways you guys have been such a blessing to me.
On Beyonce, she states:
Beyoncé, I wish people could see how you are when you’re not in front of the camera or on the stage. How compassionate and kind you are to people, how you look them right in the eye when you speak to them. How hard you work, how generous you are with your time and money. How you don’t care if anyone knows about it because you do it from the heart. I wish they could see you with the Make-A-Wish Foundation kids, how patient you are and how your love has helped to extend lives. Yes, you are a huge star, but you have somehow managed to stay grounded and humble in the wake of all your success.
Solange, I knew when you were born three days late that you would walk to the beat of your own drum. You were always my rebel warrior! Always defending the underdog and fighting for what you believe in. I remember you, at 10 years old, started a petition to remove a bad teacher, and your dad and I were so proud of you. I love that you do not let others define who you are, or what you are. Whether in your music, fashion or your life, you truly are your own incredible, unapologetic person! As tough as you are, you will drop everything to take care of someone you love.
