Beyonce Stages Free Concert In Toronto

When it comes to music stars, she’s about as big as they come and her fans in Toronto didn’t have to shell out a pretty penny to see her live on stage Friday night.


R&B sensation Beyonce rocked Dundas Square, thrilling thousands of appreciative fans who crowded Toronto’s busiest intersection.   Yonge street had to be shut down from Shuter to Dundas on account of the spirited turnout.


Beyonce is in town to promote her sophomore solo album B’Day, which just hit no. 1 on the Billboard chart. She stopped by MuchMusic Thursday night to chat with her fans and capped off her visit with a free concert.


“The way she performs an dances and the clothes that she wears are awesome,” remarked one excited young fan.


Like many other music artists, the former Destiny’s Child front woman isn’t satisfied with only producing chart topping tunes – the 25-year-old has dabbled in film and fashion.


“I’d love to win an Oscar one day but I know I have a lot of time for that,” the singer said. “I’d love to eventually do Broadway, but I don’t plan on doing that until I’m married with kids.”


She gave no hints as to when that may happen – Beyonce and rapper Jay-Z are probably music’s biggest power couple.


“I have time,” is all she said.


She starred alongside Mike Myers in Austin Powers: Goldmember, was featured in The Pink Panther and she has another flick coming out this December – a film version of the Broadway smash Dream Girls, also starring Jamie Foxx and Eddie Murphy.


Beyonce has also said she has a special place in her heart for Canada, which is where Destiny’s Child really got their start.


“Canada is memorable to me because my very first tour with Destiny’s Child was in Canada with Wyclef (Jean) and at the time we were in a little minivan … and we were the happiest kids in the world,” she said.


The trio officially parted ways after their final show together in Vancouver last September.
