“And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life.”

In her upcoming HBO Documentary, Life Is But A Dream, Beyonce explains the way she coped with her first pregnancy with her husband, Jay-Z, two years ago, which ended in a miscarriage. After the devastating news that there was no heartbeat after a checkup with the doctor, Beyonce went into the studio to use her music as an outlet for the mix of emotions. The saddest thing she’d ever been through became the start to the first track of her upcoming album. Be sure to watch Life Is But A Dream, on HBO on February 16th, for more insight.
