Just in time for her big concert return Friday night, singer Beyonce is giving folks a peek into her grueling 8-week preparation — just 5 months after giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy.
Putting her curvy post-baby-body on display, Beyonce can be seen going over the show with her husband Jay-Z, choreographer Frank Gaston and her lighting director and stage crew.
The video takes us back to 8 weeks ago when Beyonce started prepping for her show. From the stage meetings to the dance rehearsals. These rehearsals and meetings are what we spotted her attending in midtown Manhattan everyday when folks claimed she was going back to school to obtain her G.E.D..
Beyonce had this to say about the rehearsals:
“It is exciting. I feel a little nervous. I’m enjoying being a mother It’s like going back to my old job. Its a little strange. But it’s important that you don’t loose yourself and you still have your own passions. I’m back to work. I’m back to business.
What I’m trying to say with this show is, ‘Yes I had a baby and it just made me even more grounded and even more like you’.”
She is hands-on developing the whole show. And when the video was shot 8 weeks ago, she also reveals that she hasn’t sang in a year.
As for how her post baby body is shaping up, her second choreographer, Danielle Polanco, reveals:
“We’ll be basically warming her up trying to get her back into shape. Starting small, little baby steps. We’ll probably be reviewing some choreography at the end, stretching her out, just getting her back into motion. She hasn’t been working out in I don’t know how long.”
Some may question my decision to post Beyonce‘s behind-the-scenes video, but my goal has always been to Inspire and Educate our KissRichmond listeners. This particular video definitely fits into the Inspire category, for aspiring musicians, dancers, and anyone else who is working on achieving a goal. Those Inspired to take control and own what you do, and Inspired to take the time to fine tune what it is you want to present to the world. Love You, ALEXX!
