“First of all I’d like to thank my beautiful daughter and my incredible husband for all of their support,” said Beyonce, who walked the carpet with daughter Blue Ivy and the mothers of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner — who all appeared in “Lemonade” movie.

Thereafter, she sang live, danced heavily and worked the crowd as she ran through “Pray You Catch Me,” “Holy Up,” “Sorry,” “Don’t Hurt Yourself” and “Formation,” in an epic 16-minute concert on Sunday that had the audience at Madison Square Garden in awe.
