The Abbott Elementary star took to her Instagram page to document the beautiful gift she received on Saturday, 17th of September.
In the video, Sheryl opens a card attached to a white and yellow flower bouquet, finding a note from Queen Bey herself. “To the original Dreamgirl, sending you a beautiful congratulations,” the card reads. “All my love, Beyoncé.”
After reading the card, Sheryl was left shocked and speechless. She said, “So beautiful”, admiring the bouquet.
“Everyone has their own special dream and all your dreams can come true. Just look in the mirror and love what’s in front of you,” Ralph wrote in the caption of her post, as “Dreamgirls” played in the background of the video.
“Thank you @beyonce,” Ralph continued in the caption. “Don’t forget to dream girls!”
Sheryl, 65 made her big break by winning a Tony Award for her role in the hit Broadway musical Dreamgirls in 1981. In 2006, Beyoncé, 41, starred in the movie based on the show. Both stars played the role of Deena Jones.
She made history at the 2022 Emmy Awards on Monday, 12th September 2022 while winning the outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series trophy for her role in Abbott Elementary.
The industry veteran became just the second Black woman to score an Emmy in the category after Jackée Harry, who won for 227 in 1987 — a milestone Sheryl appeared to celebrate in her scene-stealing acceptance speech.
After taking the stage to accept the award from presenters Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers, Sheryl burst into song, singing a verse from jazz singer Diane Reeves’ 1993 song “Endangered Species.”
“I am an endangered species, but I sing no victim song,” she crooned, holding out several words for emphasis as names of those she wished to thank flashed across the screen. “I am a woman, I am an artist, and I know where my voice belongs.”
After singing the song which earned standing ovations from the crowd, including fellow nominees, Sheryl gave a quick, emotional and inspiring speech.
“To anyone who has ever ever had a dream and thought your dream wasn’t wouldn’t couldn’t come true I am here to tell you that this is what believing looks like,” Ralph said. “This is what striving looks like, and don’t you ever, ever give up on you.
“Because if you get a Quinta Brunson, if you get a husband like mine in your corner,” Ralph added. “If you get children like mine in your corner, and if you’ve got friends like everybody who voted for me, cheered for me, loved me, thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
American media mogul, Oprah Winfrey also delivered herself a giant bouquet of pink and white to Sheryl.
In a video posted by Sheryl’s son on Tiktok, the actress exclaimed, “Wow, yes!” as two grown men gingerly approach her driveway with the arrangement.
She added, “Oprah, you know how to get flowers done, girl. Thank you!”
