INDIO, Calif. — Bey­once has paid trib­ute Satur­day to his­tor­i­cally black col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties and also re­united with Destiny’s Child dur­ing her head­lin­ing per­for­mance at Coachella, which was de­layed for a year be­cause of her preg­nancy.

Bey­once per­formed at two-hour set of her hits in Indio, Cal­i­for­nia, where the Coachella Val­ley Mu­sic and Arts Fes­ti­val is held each year.

The su­per­star was due to per­form last year but had to post­pone be­cause she was preg­nant with her twins, Sir and Rumi.

Her re­turn did not dis­ap­point the au­di­ence with a rous­ing set, in­clud­ing pay­ing trib­ute to the march­ing bands, the dance troupes and step teams at HBCUs. She even per­formed “Lift Ev­ery Voice and Sing,” known as the na­tional black an­them.

Kelly Row­land and Michelle Williams also joined her as they sang their smash “Say My Name,” and hus­band Jay-Z also came out for a col­lab­o­ra­tion.

Bey­once is due to re­turn for her sec­ond per­for­mance as Coachella re­turns for its sec­ond run next week­end.

Bey­once per­forms at the Coachella Mu­sic and Arts Fes­ti­val Satur­day in Indio, Calif.
