When your mother is Beyoncé Knowles, your average school fundraising event has the potential to morph into something much more electric, like perhaps an actual Beyoncé concert. That's exactly what occurred last night (March 5) in Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium: Queen Bey performed as part of a fundraiser for her daughter Blue Ivy Carter's elementary school, in an event that likely netted more proceeds than any bake-sale in recorded history. 

It looked like quite a vibrant time, as many Instagrams from a fan account show Beyoncé playing classics like "Single Ladies," "Crazy in Love," and "XL." 

Watch a few notable clips of the show below: 

The diva even threw a nostalgic curveball at the audience by performing a rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You," which was filmed on a zillion iPhones. 

As Complex reminds us, Saturday's concert was the singer's first major performance since her divisive (and spellbinding) appearance at Super Bowl 50, but we should expect a bit more her as 2016 steamrolls along: Beyoncé is slated to release a much-vaunted new album this year, so here's everything you need to know about the follow-up to her self-titled opus from 2013.
