Beyonce's mom says she was afraid Bey's Coachella performance would be lost on the white crowd




Beyonce stunned the crowd with her performance at Coachella this past weekend. The performance was so good it earned her the tittle Beychella.

Her mom, Tina Lawson didn't think it would be well received. In fact, she felt a certain type of way before her daughter's historic show.
On Monday, the mother of two took to Instagram to reveal she thought her daughter's performance would be lost on the predominantly white crowd, but Beyonce calmed her down, reminding her she had a voice which she would use to tell her the Black story. Tina wrote:

Saw this written above photo and commentary by: Alisa Adamson Profit and thought i would share it with you https://apple.news/AmQP7CFzMQOS7gDDGvfigMw ❤️❤️I told Beyonce that i was afraid that the predominately white audience at Coachella would be confused by all of the black culture and Black college culture because it was something that they might not get. Her brave response to me made me feel a-bit selfish and ashamed. She said i have worked very hard to get to the point where i have a true voice and At this point in my life and my career i have a responsibility to do whats best for the world and not what is most popular “ She said that her hope is that after the show young people would research this culture and see how cool it is, and young people black and white would listen to “ LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING and see how amazing the words are for us all and bridge the gap. She also hopes that it will encourage young kids to enroll in our amazing HIstorically Black Colleges and Universities . I stand corrected ❤️
