Singer Beyoncé was the center of attraction at the second annual Wearable Art Gala, where she was present along with her family, including husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy. The event, which was held at the WACO Theater in LA on Saturday night, saw the Lemonade singer honored for her humanitarian work.
The gala was organized by Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles, who recently got married to her boyfriend Richard Lawson, and also saw the attendance of Jay-Z's mother, Gloria Carter, who was awarded the Everyday People Award.
This is what Jay-Z had to say about his mother, Gloria:
She raised four kids, and she did the best job with me.
So last night I don't even know what to say! To be in the room and to sit down and have dinner with folks I only dreamt about meeting was beyond amazing. The conversations were priceless. I had the chance to speak with Mr. Carter (or as some of you know as “Jay-Z”). I had the opportunity to shake little Miss Blue Ivy’s hand... She is truly a daddy’s girl so sweet and polite. Yes, Beyoncé was there looking stunning as always... Her speech had me in tears. She is very humble and about her business. I will NEVER forget last night. The new connections I made I can't even believe. When you believe, you can achieve, People who really know me know this is a big deal and dream come true for me. #wacotheathercenter #wearableartgala2018
Beyoncé was honored with the 2018 WACO Theater Humanitarian Award during the event. The singer became emotional while giving her acceptance speech. But before she could give her speech, the singer was greeted by Hannah Brammer, a 17-year-old girl born with brittle bones.
The award ceremony also saw an auction of artwork to raise money for a nonprofit.
