A huge historic milestone! 👏

Solange Knowles has made a historical milestone by becoming the first black woman to have the opportunity to compose a score for the New York City Ballet.

The talented singer, 36, couldn’t contain her joy and announced the news on her social media to her dedicated fans and followers.

Along with the NYC Ballet announcing the news on their official website, the songwriter also jumped to her Instagram to post about the big news.

She uploaded a photo series of herself posing at the Lincoln Center where the ballet is set to be held. In one photo, she could be seen posing in a white blouse and cream-colored, loose-fitting pants.

Another snap showed the singer and dancer posing in chic black pants and a black, crotchet top on top of a staircase.

Solange wrote out in the caption, ‘very excited to announce i’ve composed an original score for the New York City Ballet.’

The Grammy winner’s production has yet to be titled, but the choreography will be put together by Gianna Reisen. While Solange will be making her grand debut with the NYC Ballet, Gianna is no stranger to the company.

The Fall Fashion Gala production will be her third choreographed dance for the ballet, according to The New York Times.

A number of celebrities will be in attendance, including Sex And The City’s Sarah Jessica Parker, who will be the gala’s honoree. The actress is also the vice chair for the NYC Ballet.
