    CEO of the company, Marcus Mitchell, tells My Fox Houston, "Our biggest thing is a lot of people get honored when they die, so our goal is to why not honor people why they're still here? We felt as though it’s her time to be honored. We wanted to construct ... a massive hall so as the doors open, if you donated to the monument, you'll have a separate nameplate.

    "There will be clips of Beyonce with Destiny’s Child and wardrobe like a mini-museum. We’ve gotten support from the city of Houston, from the mayor."

    Proceeds from the site will be donated to a number of charitable organizations, including Music for America and Beyonce's Survivor Foundation, which offers relief to victims of natural disasters.

    Bosses are hoping to unveil the project on Beyonce's birthday, Sept. 4.
