New York:  Beyonce performs at the first show of her special '4 Intimate Nights With Beyonce' concert held at the Roseland Ballroom on Sunday in New York City.

The 29-year-old entertainer performed the history of her entire career - from losing Star Search to getting dropped by a record label, to the beginning of Destiny's Child.

Beyonce then sang the entire collection of her latest album, 4.

"Thank you so much for tonight. It's taken a lot of hard work to get me where I am," Bey expressed before the show came to an end.

"This has been a very special night for me. I searched the world and I found myself. All of you guys have been my inspiration," she added.
