“Thank you so much. I’m trying not to be too emotional. And I’m trying to just receive this night,” she said during her acceptance speech. “I want to thank God for protecting me. Thank you, God. I’d like to thank my uncle Johnny, who’s not here. But he’s here in spirit. I’d like to thank my parents, my father, my mother, for loving me and pushing me.”
“I’d like to thank my beautiful husband, my beautiful three children who are at home watching,” Beyoncé added of her husband, JAY-Z, and their kids, 11-year-old Blue and 5-year-old twins Rumi and Sir. “I’d like to thank the queer community for your love and for inventing this genre. God bless you. Thank you so much to the GRAMMYs. Thank you.”
