BEYCHELLA: Impact

Beyonce is seen as one of the greatest female performers and artists of all times.

 

She is very charitable also to the point she has donated to 37 charities so far and has supported 33 causes in her lifetime thus far.

 

She is also a supporter of the #BlackLivesMatter movement in which in Ferguson during the 2015 protests, she and husband Jay-Z Carter-Knowles wired money to bauil every single last one of the arrested protestors out of jail.

 

When the new broke, the tweets were initially taken down by Dream Hampton, a social rights activist, within minutes.

 

While she was praising the Carters, they both insisted that their contributions be kept quiet and not made public.

 

Beychella broke the record of 41 million live viewers from 232 countries during its first weekend, making it the most viewed live music festival ever on YouTube.

 

Keeping in mind, there were two performances of which people rewatched the second week. This is a huge accomplishment.

 

She isn’t someone that people want to be, but instead someone that inspires little black and brown girls to be the best that they can be and to make sure that they use every little piece of support to get them where they need to be.

 

Beyonce has always been one to not be ashamed of where she came from and definitely has not been shy of supporting those in the same situation of he once the money is out of view.

 

She has helped out black communities repeatedly and one thing she does that is notable for communities of black college kids is donating.

 

After Beychella, through her BeyGOOD initiative, the she launched the “Homecoming Scholars Award Program” for the 2018-2019 academic year.

 

The program gave four HBCUs – Xavier, Wilberforce, Tuskegee and Bethune-Cookman Universities each a $25,000 scholarship.

Each college was able to choose one student who maintained a 3.5 GPA throughout their college years thus far.

Every summer a new recipient is chosen.
