Beyonce has Austrian genes

Who would have thought that Beyoncé is related to Austrian renowned composer and conductor Gustav Mahler (1860-1911). Besides his own compositions he was director of the Vienna Court Opera and later director of New York’s Metropolitan Opera and New York Philharmonic.
The British Author and BBC-Journalist Norman Lebrecht researched this for his new book “Why Maler?”. Beyoncé ist the Great-Great-Grandniece to the 9th degree. Mahler’s relatives emigrated to the US and crossed paths with Beyoncé’s African and Caribbean ancestors.
