Beyonce stopped a show in Birmingham on Sunday to sing happy birthday to a fan.

Shehnaz Khan was celebrating her 22nd birthday at the LG Arena when the US singer stopped, asked her name and held her hand before she began to sing to her.

Beyonce stopped her band after noticed Shehnaz wearing a birthday badge.

She said: "You got the sign and everything. What's your name and how do you spell it?"

The singer then held Shehnaz's hand before breaking into song.

The show was part of the UK and Ireland leg of The Mrs. Carter Show tour, which started in Glasgow on 20 February.

Beyonce will also play four dates at London's O2 Arena and will finish with three performances at The O2 in Dublin in March.

In December, Beyonce unexpectedly released her fifth album on iTunes, with 14 new songs and 17 music videos.

The self-titled record is the follow-up to 2011's 4, and features guest spots from her husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy.

"Surprise!" wrote the 32-year-old in a press release, adding she was "bored" with releasing music the traditional way.

According to the Official Chart Company, the album peaked at number two in the UK album chart.
