"Beyoncé has influenced many Minnesota girls and women with the powerful, positive messages in her music, and her impact and success has been widely-recognized," a press release from Dayton's office stated.

Minnesota Lt. Gov. Tina Smith (D) also signed the proclamation.

The declaration of "Beyoncé Day" came as the award-winning performer continued her Formation World Tour in Minneapolis Monday night. Her show drew thousands of fans to TCF Bank Stadium, despite stormy weather and a temporary evacuation due to lightening.
