From The Founder - Beyoncé Knowles' Best
I don’t want to be overdramatic, but Beyonce’s set at Coachella was the best performance that I will ever witness in my lifetime. The queen has made her presence known once again in the most incredible way, as she goes down in history as the first black woman to ever headline the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.
From her royal grand entrance donning a scepter, to the “Crazy In Love” duet with her beloved husband, Sean Carter, to the outstanding production design, to the impeccable choreography, the hundreds of dancers and musicians on stage, to the mind-blowing vocals. The world truly does not deserve such a talented human being. Did I mention that Destiny’s Child reunited and sent me into a haze of nostalgia?! I thought I was going to pass out when Kelly, Beyonce, and Michelle rose from the inner-workings of the stage in a cloud of smoke like 3 phoenixes rising out of the ashes. They made my childhood dreams come true as they sang “Lose My Breath”, “Say My Name” (my favorite song of all time), and “Soldier”. Every song, every movement, every glance was perfectly orchestrated in her 10+ hour rehearsals.
Not only is Beyoncé a world-renowned entertainer, but a world-renowned philanthropist as well. Her charity, BeyGOOD is the outlet of her many philanthropic endeavors, most recently, the queen and her team announced a new scholarship after her Coachella Weekend 1 performance. BeyGOOD will give $100,000 in scholarships to HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). Beyoncé’s entire Coachella performance was a celebration of her accomplishment as the first black female to headline the festival (that has been running since 1999).
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter is the most talented human being on planet Earth AND is generous in her commitment to philanthropy. What we need are voices to be heard, opportunities to be given, and people who are using their platforms for good to make the world a better place for all.
