Beyonce Knowles is to follow the example of her boyfriend Jay-Z by performing a pay-per-view concert in America.

The Destiny's Child pin-up has joined forces with vehicle giants FORD to perform in front of America from Dearborn, Michigan, on 14 June (03) - as part of the car company's 100th birthday celebrations.

Dearborn is where the Ford company was born.

The show, FORD PRESENTS BEYONCE KNOWLES, FAMILY + Friends, will also feature her Destiny's Child pals Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland, as well as sister Solange and gospel group RAMIYAH.

Beyonce says, "I'm thrilled to have been chosen for this historic celebration."
