Tyler Perry broke new ground this weekend with the opening of his own studios.
Aptly named Tyler Perry Studios, the Atlanta based space is the first operation of its kind to be fully Black owned.
The launch ceremony was attended by a who’s who of Black Hollywood – with one of the most notable guests being Beyonce.
Clearly moved by Perry’s monumental venture, Queen Bey took to social media to share an impassioned congratulatory message.
Her words below…
Happy Sunday. Congratulations to Tyler Perry on the opening of his studios. I could feel our ancestors’ presence. Surrounded by my heroes, I watched Denzel, Queen Oprah, Spike, Whoopi, Sir Poitier, Will, Halle , Dame Cicely and our angels John Singleton and Diahann Carroll honored. The Armand de Brignac crashed against each soundstage as fireworks lit up the sky. Generations of blood, sweat and tears, success, excellence and brilliance. It makes me so proud, so full, I could not stop crying. Thank you my Virgo brother for so much love and passion put into every detail. My prayer today is that you will take it all in. You inspire me to dream even bigger.
Speaking of, check out the Queen in action from the evening:
