Beyonce Reveals The Impact Created by Global Citizen Festival

Beyonce is opening up about the impact that the Global Citizen Festival had following the big event earlier this month.

The 37-year-old entertainer and her husband Jay Z headlined the event and then went on a vacation together.

“After settling in at home from a beautiful trip to South Africa and India, I am still in awe that 7.1 BILLION dollars was raised to aid Global Citizen in its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty,” Beyonce wrote on her Instagram account.

“I’d like to give my praise and respect to all the speakers, performers, and volunteers who donated their time to contribute to making positive change,” she continued. “Every person in the audience at FNB Stadium earned a seat because they generously donated their time to help their community. Now their efforts and the money raised will help improve education, healthcare, sanitation, women’s rights, and countless other causes for millions across the globe.”

“I felt so much positivity and pride in the audience at Global Citizen: Mandela 100. Madiba, Johannesburg, and all of my African sisters and brothers, we hope we made you as proud as you all make us. South Africa was an extraordinary trip for me and my family. God bless,” Beyonce added. “If you would like to become a Global Citizen you can get more info at globalcitizen.org.”
