The bar is set impossibly high for Beyoncé, and yet, she still manages to raise it every single damn time she performs. And this past weekend’s Coachella performance was no exception.
With guest appearances from Jay Z, Solange, and Destiny’s Child alums Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland, Bey’s shocked and awed Coachella attendees. The New York Times even went as far to write a review entitled, "Beyoncé Is Bigger Than Coachella!"
In addition to having various family and past group members come up on stage, Beyoncé paid tribute to the marching bands, dance troupes, and step teams of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Then she put her money where her mouth is, not only paying homage to HBCUs, but actually donating $100,000 to them.
That's right, earlier today Beyoncé announced the Homecoming Scholars Award Program for the 2018-2019 academic year through her BeyGOOD initiative. She plans to give $25,000 each to Tuskegee University, Bethune-Cookman University, Xavier University of Louisiana, and Wilberforce University. One student from each school will receive the scholarship money.
All hail the queen!
