The second annual Wearable Art Gala was a family affair for the Knowles-Carters. Beyoncé, JAY-Z and Blue Ivy were in attendance at the WACO theatre in LA on Saturday night where the Lemonade singer was honoured for her humanitarian work.
The swanky gala, organised by Bey’s mum, Tina Knowles, and her husband Richard Lawson, was also attended by JAY-Z’s mother, Gloria Carter, who was given the Everyday People Award. Gloria also received a touching tribute from her rapper son himself. “She raised four kids and she did the best job with me,” he joked.
Beyoncé received the 2018 WACO Theatre Humanitarian Award and became visibly emotional while delivering her acceptance speech. Before taking to the podium, the mum of three was greeted by Hannah Brammer, a 17-year-old fan born with brittle bones who has met the singer at concerts before.
The dress code of the evening was “Waco to Wakanda”, inspired by the gorgeous setting in Black Panther, and featured an auction of artwork to raise money for a non-profit art and performance complex.
