The superstar purchased a 7,500 sq. ft stone church in New Orleans. TMZ reported that the church was built in the early 1900's, making it structure over a 100-years-old. The church was listed at $850,000, although it is unclear if this is exactly what Beyoncé paid.
The church has apparently been out of use for awhile because its members have passed away. The church is located nearby where her kid sister Solange lives.
Just a few weeks ago, a church in San Francisco held a worship service themed all around Beyoncé. Grace Cathedral hosted a "Beyoncé Mass" as a part of its weekly worship series targeted towards women and young worshippers, reported Mother Jones.
The service included a sermon about liberation struggle and featured scripture readings by black women, readings from a speech by the civil rights leader Ella Baker, and singing along to Beyoncé songs. Some songs that were played included "Listen," "Freedom," "Flaws and All," and "I Was Here," and "Survivor" by Destiny's Child. Reverend Yolanda Norton, a San Francisco Theological Seminary professor, delivered the sermon and helped organize the service. Beyoncé's church probably will take a different direction, but this was fun nonetheless.
