It has been announced that Beyoncé's monumental music offering Lemonade is now a winner of a Peabody award. The visual project that was released last year in April quickly rose to the top of the charts & gained the strong liking of fans all over the world.
Lemonade joins seven other honorees in the catagory of Entertainment including Happy Valley, Atlanta, Better Things, Horace and Pete, Veep, & National Treasure. Organizers of the event had this to say about Mrs. Knowles-Carter:
"Lemonade draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic, & aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation. The audacity of it's reach & fierceness of it's vision challenges our cultural imagination, while crafting a stunning & sublime masterpiece about the lives of women of color & the bonds of friendship seldom seen or heard in American pop culture."
