R&B powerhouse Beyonce Knowles is still in Ethiopia. On your left is the songstress at the Ethiopian Orthodox Church where she kicked off her world tour last week Wednesday in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
It's unusual for a Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church to appeal for the second coming of a female R & B superstar whose messages have no spiritual content other than promoting the temptations and sins of our time that he condemns in his daily sermons. A short list of Beyonce Knowles' song titles are enough to reveal the fact that her songs contain no trace of gospel messages or praises to the Almighty. Crazy in Love, Naughty Girl, Get Me Bodied, Suga Mama, Beautiful Liar and The Last Great Seduction are a few among the many songs that have made Beyonce so popular around the world. When Beyonce was in Addis Ababa last week for the so-called millennium celebration to entertain the rich in poverty stricken city, she was obviously shocked to get a fan from an unexpected corner. No wonder! The Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, His Holiness Abune Paulos, not only gave her a gift but also requested her to come again to Ethiopia to spread her message. Any devout Christian may consider the story itself a fictitious blasphemy but he did it on the record in front of local and international media.[from Toya's World]
Afterwards, Beyonce visited a school full of her biggest fans...
Via Corner of Beyonce:
While touring in Ethiopia over the weekend, Beyonce stopped at a local school to meet the kids and pose for photographs. About an hour before Beyonce arrived at the school in Addis Ababa, B's security detail reportedly arrived to check for weapons. Soon after, she rolled up with her team and the kids "fell in love" with Jay-Z's girlfriend. They presented her with flowers and did a special dance for her, while wearing their traditional Ethiopian clothing. They also tried to teach her some dance moves. An hour after she left, Beyonce is said to have called to invite the older kids to her concert, setting aside tickets in the VIP section for them.
Thanks Corner of Beyonce for the photos!
