What's better than ringing in the new year than with a special message from Beyonce? Next to nothing, basically. But that was reality for American soldiers stationed in Kuwait and Afghanistan, celebrating 2015 at a glowstick-filled neon party.
Just after midnight and a balloon shower to kick off 2015, Beyonce's voice flowed through the speakers with Queen Bey herself appearing on a big screen. In the video, Beyonce shared a special message for the troops. She said, "I just want to say a big thank you for everything you do to keep our country safe. We all sleep better at night knowing that you guys are protecting us, and we are filled with gratitude. So we wanted to do something special for you guys."
The surprise continued when she revealed that they would all be treated to an exclusive screening of Bey and Jay Z's "On The Run" tour documentary. The soldiers were ecstatic to say the least.
