“Today is special,” Beyoncé said during her concert. “I’m so excited to be on stage. Y’alls faces are so beautiful. You know today’s special because today… I am the mayor.”
Beyoncé is no stranger to Santa Clara. She has performed at Levi’s Stadium several times, including during her 2016 Formation World Tour. The city has also been a major supporter of her career, hosting her Super Bowl halftime show in 2013.
In a statement, Santa Clara Mayor Lisa Gillmor said that Beyoncé was “a perfect fit” for the honorary mayor title. “She is a global icon who has used her platform to promote equality and social justice,” Gillmor said. “She is also a proud mother and wife, and we are honored to have her as a part of our community.”
