Beyonce Named Woman of the Year By Billboard Magazine

Beyonce is so talented and classy she's truly in a league of her own. So it doesn't surprise us one bit that Billboard Magazine would chose her as their Woman Of The Year.

Beyonce will accept the award at the publication’s annual Women In Music Event in New York on October 2. She's being honored for all her accomplishments, including a sell-out world tour, chart-topping album ‘I Am… Sasha Fierce’ and her humanitarian efforts which include teaming up with General Mills Hamburger Helper and Feeding America to deliver 3.5 million meals to local food banks and giving 2,500 concert tickets to disadvantaged families.

Bill Werde, Billboard's Editorial Director, said: "Beyonce is multi-platinum artist and a multi-talented woman who clearly embodies the qualities of excellence and achievement that the Billboard Woman Of The Year Award was created to honor.

"She has not only influenced pop culture with her hit songs and signature dance moves, but has inspired women everywhere with her unique style, business savvy and dedication to charitable causes."

The award is usually given to an artist who has inspired the music business with all their success, leadership skills, and ideas. Ciara and country singer Reba McIntyre have previously been named Woman Of The Year.

Not only will be accept the award in person, she's set to be the only performer that evening. Congrats B, you deserve it more than anyone else this year!
