Beyonce & Jay Z’s Global Citizen Festival Performance — Watch It Here
On the heels of ending their “On The Run” tour in Paris, France, Beyonce and Jay Z reunited on stage in Central Park this weekend. (We can’t think of a better way to say, “We’re home!”)
Jay served as the headliner for the Global Citizen Festival, where he performed a medley of hits. However, he definitely saved the best for last!
After a brief run backstage, Jay Z returned with his wife by his side, and she looked AMAZING in Dolce&Gabbana.
He and Beyonce performed “Holy Grail,” a track Jay Z originally recorded with Justin Timberlake, and “Forever Young.” It was the perfect way to close out the show. (Watch the video above!)
“Change only takes place when and where there is action,” Jay Z said in a statement about the event, hosed by Hugh Jackman. “I’m joining the 2014 Global Citizen Festival because I believe through actions, whether it be by raising awareness, getting involved or educating ourselves, the goal to end extreme poverty by 2030 is possible.”
The rapper got involved by performing a medley of hits, and cheering on the others involved — Sting, who performed with No Doubt, Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, fun., The Roots and Tiesta all performed, while Jessica Alba and Olivia Wilde also presented.
