Beyonce Knowles broke down in tears at the SOUL TRAIN AWARDS on Saturday (20MAR04) when her proud Destiny's Child bandmates joined her onstage to celebrate her Entertainer of The Year honour.

Knowles, a double winner at the ceremony, lost her composure after KELLY ROWLAND paid a moving tribute to her before handing over her latest prize.

And, as she stepped out to receive the award, bandmate MICHELLE WILLIAMS - a performer at the ceremony - took to the stage to congratulate her pal.

After receiving a standing ovation from the INTERNATIONAL CULTURAL CENTER audience, a choked-up Beyonce said, "It's so wonderful to accept this award and to have the support of my sisters."
