Beyoncé made history on April 14 as the first woman of color to headline the yearly music festival Coachella, held in Indio, California.

The singer and songwriter delivered an iconic performance that had fans at the festival starstruck from the moment she took the stage with a marching band version of her hit song “Crazy in Love.”

From that point on Beyoncé delivered hit after hit with a solid set of songs featuring some of her most well-known tunes.

“Y’all ready Coachella?” she asked the crowd as she opened her set, as reported by CNN.

She later uploaded several performance photos to her official Instagram account.

Bey was later joined on stage by her husband Jay-Z, who duetted on the tune “Déjà Vu” and her sister Solange who danced through “Get Me Bodied.”

But perhaps the biggest surprise of all was the reunion of Destiny’s Child, the iconic band Bey was a member of from 1997-2006.

Fans were at their loudest when Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams joined their childhood friend on stage as they performed the tunes “Lose My Breath,” “Say My Name,” and “Soldier”.

Beyoncé was slated to headline the 2017 Coachella festival but canceled under doctor’s orders because she was pregnant with twins Rumi and Sir Carter.

Lady Gaga stepped in as Beyoncé’s replacement.

Hours before Saturday’s performance, the singer posted on Facebook that she couldn’t wait to take the stage and interact with her fans.

“I am so excited to see the BeyHive tonight at Coachella. We have been working hard and have a special show planned for you so please be safe and stay hydrated,” she wrote on the social media site.

“We need your energy!”

Beyoncé and Jay-Z will kick off their “OTR II” joint tour this summer.
