Adele is leading the charge in paying homage to the Queen on her birthday.
The “Hello” singer took to Twitter to wish Beyoncé a happy birthday as she turned 36 on Monday. “Happy Birthday to the Queen

Former Destiny Child bandmate Michelle Williams, Beyoncé’s mom Tina Knowles Lawson and her husband JAY-Z’s mom Gloria Carter were also among the nearly 20 women who participated. The top of the page reads “Happy Birthday Beyoncé from Your Family and Friends,” along with a link to join them in supporting relief efforts in her hometown of Houston with the hashtag “BEYGOODHOUSTON.”
Beyoncé’s father Matthew Knowles also wished his daughter a happy birthday in an emotional Instagram post, choking back tears as he remembered the day she was born. “Happy Birthday
@beyonce! I love you and I’m so proud of you!” he captioned.
