Two Alumni Performed with Beyoncé During Super Bowl Halftime Show


Two William Paterson alumni, Tiffany Monique Riddick ’04 and Crystal J. Torres ’05, performed with pop sensation Beyoncé during the much-publicized Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday, February 3.

Torres, a 2005 graduate of William Paterson University’s jazz program, plays trumpet in Beyonce Knowles’ all-female band. Riddick (nee Marshal), who graduated in 2004, is a member of Beyonce’s background vocalist trio, The Suga Mamas. Both artists have toured with Beyoncé.

Beyoncé released the following video on her website featuring Riddick (the background vocalist far right with the curly hair) and Torres playing trumpet. To see them rehearsing for Sunday’s performance, click below:
