Houston Wants A Beyonce Monument!

| Filed under: BeyonceInspirationGrammys

beyonce monument coming to houston

Sounds like this should be more successful than Detroit's attempt to get a Robocop statue erected. Ha!

Marcus Mitchell and Steve White of Armdeonce Ventures are currently seeking out private donors to help them build a monument for Beyonce in Houston, Texas…and we're hearing that the city is supporting them!

Here's what Marcus had to say about it:

"She is the number 1 entertainer from Houston. She’s in the prime of her career, producer, actress; Houston is proud and she comes back to Houston often."

"Our biggest thing is a lot of people get honored when they die, so our goal is to why not honor people why they're still here? We felt as though it’s her time to be honored."

"We wanted to construct, like, a massive hall so as the doors open, if you donated to the monument, you'll have a separate nameplate. There will be clips of Beyonce with Destiny’s Child and wardrobe like a mini museum."

And more from Marcus:

"We’ve gotten support from the city of Houston, from the mayor. We’re waiting for a very nice letter from the mayor right now."

Assuming all goes according to plan, the Beyonument should be unveiled on September 4th (Bey's b-day).

Best part of it all? Some proceeds from the project will go to Music for America, Beyonce's Survivor foundation, and the Grammy Cares foundation!

Good luck with the project, Houston!!!!

    Please, don't feed her narcissism.

    I don't support that monument thing at all. She is nothing very special to be honest. Just bum-shaking, that's it. Her voice is just average. Too overated!

    not everyone in houston likes beyonce… i'm one of them.

    Preetty sillay. I don't know what's worse though, this or the college course on Beyonce - I think that takes the cake.

    I live in Houston, haven't heard a thing about this. I can tell you…It'll have to go in front of her families home church because no one else could give a flying fig about erecting her.

    I'm also from Houston and can't stand the bitch. We have plenty of other talent from Houston…what makes her so special? She's no Elvis or Michael.

    Hmmm…I'm also from Houston and haven't heard a peep about this.

    A monument??? This somehow sounds more like a golden calf. Name a street after her, or a children's hospital wing, music school or a library.
