The Carter family outdid themselves on Saturday night at the 2018 Wearable Art Gala night at Waco Theater. Beyoncé Knowles Carter who was a recipient to humanitarian award gave an emotional tribute to her mom, Tina Knowles.
The second annual Wearable Art Gala was a night of sky twinkled with stars and the Knowles-Carters dominated the night. Jay Z, Beyoncé and their six year old, Blue Ivy were all in attendance at the WACO Theater in Los Angeles on Saturday night where the Dangerously In Love singer was honored with humanitarian award for her work.
Also in attendance was Jay Z’s mother, Gloria Carter who received the Everyday People Award, she also received a touching tribute from the rapper himself.
“She raised four kids and she did the best job with me.” He joked.
Beyoné Knowles Carter who received the 2018 WACO Humanitarian Award suddenly became very emotional while delivering her acceptance speech. Before she took to the stage, Beyoncé was greeted by Hannah Brammer, a 17 year old fan born with brittle bones who has met the singer before in a concert. Beyoncé also got a special shout out from former United States of America first lady , Michelle Obama via a prerecorded message which was played on screen.
The dress code for the evening was “from WACO to Wakanda,” inspired by the gorgeous setting in Black Panther, and the event featured an auction of artwork to raise money for a nonprofit art and performance complex. At one point, Blue, who wore a gold wig, completely upstaged her famous parents, bidding $17,000 on an acrylic painting of a young Sidney Poitier. JAY-Z attempted to stop her by taking away her paddle, but it didn’t work. Blue bid even higher at $19,000.
Unfortunately, she lost out on the piece to director Tyler Perry for a cool $20,000, Vanity Fair reports. That doesn’t mean the adorable 6-year-old left empty-handed, though. Blue bid $10,000 on another piece made of deconstructed law and medical books and took home the prize like the true boss that she is. The moment was too cute to miss and has since gone viral online.
