This Week in History

On this date in 2004, four of the leading ladies of pop and R&B, took the stage at Philips Arena. The Verizon First Ladies Tour featured incredible star power with Tamia, Missy Elliott, Alicia Keys and Beyoncé. With a multitude of awards and #1 hits among them, these four ladies certainly did not disappoint. Tamia kicked off the show, followed by Missy Elliott who proved why she is the first lady of hip-hop, by performing her hits like “Get Ur Freak on” and “Work It”. Then came Alicia Keys with a more soulful set as she belted out songs from both Songs in A Minor and her new album, The Diary of Alicia Keys. Last, but certainly not least, Beyoncé closed out the show with a performance fit for a queen. After entering the stage in a white chariot, she kept the crowd moving until she ended the show with her #1 single “Crazy in Love”. While this marked Beyoncé’s first tour as a solo artist, she did make Destiny’s Child fans proud, singing a medley of the group’s hits.
