Beyoncé makes history at Coachella

Adele reacts to Beyonce’s Coachella performance Adele reacts to Beyonce’s Coachella performance

Lawson took to Instagram to let the world know she stands corrected by posting a lengthy, intimate conversation she had with her daughter before her historic performance on Saturday (April 14), which drew inspiration from HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities).

"We salute the rich legacy of Historically Black Colleges and Universities", states Ivy McGregor, Director of Philanthropy and Corporate Relations at Parkwood Entertainment which houses BeyGOOD.

Her show was replete with a long list of references to America's historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

This year, Coachella was gracious enough to step aside and allow Beyoncé to bless us mere mortals with Beychella.

This absolutely was the very first time a dark female headlined the two-weekend festival, one of the biggest USA tunes parties of this year.

The disciplines associated with the program will include literature, creative arts, African American studies, science, education, business, communications, social sciences, computer science and engineering. It was the impetus to mark her second scholarship program. Applicants will be selected from various majors and are required to maintain a 3.5 GPA or above.

But the singer was in for a surprise herself.

The Formation Scholars Awards Program, a merit scholarship program was established in April 2017 in celebration of the one-year anniversary of LEMONADE, Beyoncé's critically-acclaimed and globally-lauded 2016 visual album.

It's undoubtedly a worthy goal to help young black students get ahead by giving back to the community the way the singer has done over the years.

The program will pick one victor from each school to receive $25,000 for the upcoming school year.
