Beyoncé is hitting the stage for a very special solo performance next month and we’re already counting down the days until it happens.
Queen Bey has been confirmed to perform at the City of Hope Gala on October 11 in Los Angeles, which is her first solo performance following the successful run of the biggest tour of the summer with JAY-Z. OTRII stadium tour is scheduled to wrap on October 4 in Seattle, Washington.
In addition to showing her support for City of Hope, a world-renowned independent research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases, Beyoncé will perform to celebrate Jon Platt, who is the event’s Spirit of Life® award recipient and CEO of Warner/Chappell Music. Platt has worked with Bey since 2005.
“Beyoncé agreed to perform without a moment’s hesitation, and that wasn’t just for me,” said Jon Platt. “She wanted to be part of our celebration for the patients, doctors, scientists, and nurses who make City of Hope a place where miracles can happen. That’s what makes her a cultural icon. She’s not only a genius, in a class of her own, but she has phenomenal heart and soul, and she knows how to use them. This event is going to be one for the ages.”
“I am happy to be in a room that celebrates Jon and the important work he does behind the scenes,” said Beyoncé. “City of Hope has done much needed research and has provided quality care for patients for over a hundred years. I am honored to be a part of an event that represents an organization that works so tirelessly caring for others first and foremost.”
