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.
