Beyoncé’s tribute comes after she initially reacted to news of Turner’s death with an emotional message on her website, writing in part: “My beloved queen, I love you endlessly. I’m so grateful for your inspiration, and all the ways you have paved the way.”
In her post, she also shared a photo of the pair holding hands and bowing at the 2008 Grammys, where they belted out Turner’s song “Proud Mary” together.
