Early this month, singer Beyoncé and her family, including kids Blue Ivy Carter and the twins Sir and Rumi Carter, flew to Johannesburg, South Africa and later to India. In South Africa, the singer and her husband Jay-Z headlined the Global Citizen Festival. The festival was a success as more than 7.1 Billion dollars was raised for non-profit organization, Global Citizen.
This week, not only did Beyoncé share photos from her trip to South Africa, she also shared some candids from her trip to India on her website Beyonce.com.
She wrote on Instagram: “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. 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.”
“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.”
The songstress says that the trip was a wonderful experience for her and her family.
She added: “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.”
