In all aspirations, Solange Knowles is a mother first. The singer recently cancelled her European Summer tour to be near her son as he embarks on the task of finding new friends at a new school.

“I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was but between moving part-time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/recording my new record, I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health and provide some stability for my family,” said the singer in a statement. “I am so so sooooo sorry if I’ve disappointed, and really hope to make it out to those special cities soon enough!”


Solange was slated to perform at festivals in Denmark, Belgium, Portugal, Norway, Finland and Poland. The singer previously cancelled two shows in London and Yorkshire in preparation for her son to begin school telling fans, “My son will be starting a new school … which unexpectedly begins a few weeks earlier than his previous one. It’s imperative that I am there [for] his first week to transition him. I really hope that you understand and I promise I’ll be back in your area soon enough to make up for it.”

Knowles is working on a follow-up album to her EP, True, which features the club hit, ‘Losing You’ on it. Solange is the proud mother of Daniel Julez Smith Jr. The singer gave birth to him on October 18, 2004.
