Solange Knowles Is 'Beyond Humbled' To Be Honored With Lena Horne Prize

Solange Knowles steps out in a cutout jumpsuit for the Lena Horne Prize for Artists Creating Social Impact Event at Town Hall on Friday night (February 28) in New York City.

The 33-year-old singer’s mom Tina Knowles and her husband Richard Lawson were there to support her, as well as Common, Andra Day, Leon Bridges, Jon Batiste and Mumu Fresh, among others.

Solange is the first ever recipient of the award, which honors “excellence at the intersection of arts and activism.”

She receives $100,000, which she will turn over to Project Row Houses, a Houston-based nonprofit.

“I will never forget being a young girl and the impact of hearing the great Lena Horne so radiantly and powerfully singing the words ‘believe in yourself’ from that remarkable moment in The Wiz,” Solange shared in a statement. “I have carried it with me closely my entire life.”

She continued, “At the age of 12, I played this very role at the Ensemble Theatre in Houston, Texas and it was then I learned about Lena’s dedicated activism and fearless integrity as a woman and groundbreaking artist. I am honored to be receiving an award that bears her name and continue her legacy of using the arts to inspire reflection and evoke change.”

FYI: Solange wore a David Koma jumpsuit with Rene Caovilla shoes. Common is wearing a Sandro suit.

Camila Cabello & Ben Platt Perform in a Tribute to Education at Grammys 2020

Camila Cabello and Ben Platt appear on stage while performing in a tribute to music education at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 26) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The two young stars joined lots of other artists like John Legend, Cyndi Lauper, Gary Clark Jr., Joshua Bell, Misty Copeland, Lang Lang, Common, The War and Treaty, and Lee Curreri during the performance.

As part of a tribute to Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich and his commitment to music education, the artists all performed “I Sing the Body Electric” from the movie Fame.

“It was pretty plain to me that, you know, rather than to put together a montage of great Grammy moments, which everybody has seen now a lot of times, … that this was a fresh way of doing something that really represented what I’ve tried to do with the Grammys,” Ehrlich told the Associated Press. “And it’s consistent with what the mission of the Academy is with regard to music education and music of the schools.”

FYI: Ben is wearing a Coach look. Common wore a Dolce&Gabbana look.
