Beyoncé packed some major surprises into her three Renaissance World Tour shows in Los Angeles, including a serenade from Diana Ross and a cameo from Kendrick Lamar. But she still found a moment to sneak in an easter egg during her final SoFi Stadium show on her birthday, Sept. 4.
During her performance of “1+1,” she spotted “Sister, Sister” star Tia Mowry in the crowd, inspiring her to incorporate a nod to the actress’ childhood girl group Voices. Beyoncé was mid-riff when she saw Mowry, blowing her a kiss and mouthing “I love you” before spontaneously weaving in a piece of Voices’ 1992 song “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!”

Mowry was part of the early 1990s girl group with her twin sister Tamera Mowry-Housley prior to them starring on the hit TV show “Sister, Sister.” Voices, a six-piece R&B collective, released its only album “Just the Beginning…” in 1992, led by the single “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!” that peaked at No. 72 on the Billboard Hot 100.
“I felt so lucky to have been able to see her perform Renaissance on her birthday!” wrote Mowry on Instagram, including a photo of her and her sister with the original Destiny’s Child lineup. “I was so touched by her gesture, and I still can’t believe that it truly happened!”
The show, which marked the finale of her RWT Los Angeles dates, featured a long list of stars in attendance including Justin Bieber, Adele, Lizzo, Zendaya and Kim Kardashian. Beyoncé capped her birthday performance before heading out on the final stretch of the blockbuster tour, which concludes on Oct. 1 in Kansas City, MO.
