Beyonce Soars At ‘City Of Hope’ Gala [Video]

Published: Friday 12th Oct 2018 by Sam

Beyonce may have just wrapped the ‘On The Run II’ tour with Jay-Z, but she’s already back at it.

Last night, Queen Bey took front stage center at the City Of Hope ceremony where she performed songs in honor of Warner/Chappell chairman Jon Platt. The seasoned exec was celebrated with the Spirt Of Life award for his philanthropical efforts.

Hosted by Pharrell Williams, the Los Angeles event also also attended by Jay-Z. 

Check out clips of Bey in action after the jump…

Much as we love to see Bey in all her choreographed glory, it was refreshing to see her remind the folk that she is a premier vocalist too – one of this generation’s best.

She sounded exquisite and soared in ways we’d love to hear more of on her next project.

Your thoughts?

    • Wonder Woman October 12, 2018

      Fghkfyuffyyhudsgjk The IRONY, the f****** irony I can’teth….

      Your fave has been flopping for the past 2-3 years straight….. Onica the cowardly dog has 120 singles yet no #1 which is a Kii seeing she really cares for sales while Roach and Camel don’t give 2 shits about sales esp since their uncancelled sold out tour was a success…..

      Worry about Cardi getting a grammy before the self proclaimed queen of rap

      And I know you ain’t mocking Roach as having a fake d*** /p**** (however it works) when your fave is fake in and out, figuratively and literally hghddghhf EYE CAN’T!!!!

      • ??? October 12, 2018

  4. K.b October 12, 2018

    Damn I thought that was Mariah carey.

    • JOHNVIDAL October 12, 2018

      Yes she is copying Mariah´s style when singing ballads.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 12, 2018

        @John except Beyoncé’s vocals are 100% live and amazing. Mariah wasn’t the first or last to wear a s***/beautiful gown and sing a ballad. Toni Braxton, Vanessa Williams, Aretha Franklin were doing it when Mariah was still wearing leather trench coats, turtle necks and Nine West boots or even before she came out.

      • JOHNVIDAL October 13, 2018

        Bish please just no! Look at people thought she was Mariah at first glance. It may be for a reason? LOL Nobody thought she was Toni. Mariah debuted before Toni btw, and by that time was much bigger than what Toni has ever been. Bye.

  5. Cash October 12, 2018

    Beyonce looks amazing go bey always slaying

  6. pat October 12, 2018

    her and that wind machine…lol… she lost a lot of top chest range, but still a good technical singer

    • BC October 12, 2018


    • iamdiego October 12, 2018

      Are we watching the same videos? She still has it, and sounds better actually. IMO

    • pat October 12, 2018

      dangerously in love, halo performances from previous eras included much higher notes than that “big” note of this halo climax… still good tho

      • KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) October 12, 2018

        Nah Beyonce has always been a “good singer” but she’s gotten better over the years. She doesn’t “yell” as much lol and has better vocal control. You don’t like her tho. So the backhand compliments aren’t necessary. Continue listening to Whisperara’s live vocals. Thank you.

      • Tori October 12, 2018

        Sir…Beyonce voice has changed since 2003-now. Where her voice was lighter on notes, it’s now lower and hold more depth. This can be heard everytime she sings a songs from B’Day or 4 because they require more singing. Its completely normal for peoples voice to change
        and definitely normal for their voice to become much more seasoned as they know their more and the techniques they’re comfortable with. She still tends to yell, more so in live performances than in the studio, which is completely understandable consider the energy of a live setting. How is that not liking someone? That’s that person opinion. They said nothing wrong but gave a honest opinion on her voice.

  7. Blessed October 12, 2018

    Damn!! Sang Queen Bey!! Her voice gets better as she gets older! Can’t wait for that solo album! Please bring these vocals!

  8. Bloop October 12, 2018

    Satanic witch

  9. Selah October 12, 2018

    I miss Beyoncé the songbird! I hope she gives us VOCALS on the next album.

    • iamdiego October 12, 2018

      me too.

  10. Realtalk October 12, 2018

    @Wendy Williams for you to even think that Beyoncé don’t have a voice and to sing raw you truly don’t know about vocals because she differently has vocals and her singing raw is so much talent. Go on YouTube and check out her singing ? I was here , listen and more . You Wendy are so hateful of Beyoncé but guess what she is what you hope you are

  11. Saguy October 12, 2018

    Is it just me or is beyonce getting older and uglier.

  12. Jamon October 12, 2018

    Beautiful voice. Wish she cut back on the rap/singing now.

    I can’t believe Kim Kardashian passed her on Instagram followers again.

  13. JOHNVIDAL October 12, 2018

    She posing and dressing like Mariah Carey. It´s her way to emulate the greats. When she has to sing ballads she follows Mariah or Celine footsteps, when performing… Tina Turner and Michael…

    • Selah October 12, 2018

      Too bad Mariah can’t sing as well as Bey… 🙁

      • ??? October 12, 2018

        lmaooo bye bug, mariahs breathing voice is ten times better than roach’s bug screetching lmfaooooo

    • SMH October 12, 2018

      Tina Turner and Michael??? LMFAO i see absolutely nothing from either one of those greats when beyonce performs.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 12, 2018

        @SMH Because ur a hater, that’s why. duh

    • JOHNVIDAL October 13, 2018

      Ohhh Mariah´s voice is something way more special than Beyonce´s that´s for sure. It isn´t the same anymore. But the thing that matters is that it was and the things she did with it and that will last forever. Mariah was wow. Beyonce has never been that type of singer despite her great technique.

  14. 4U2SEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I love Glennis Grace. October 12, 2018

    Beyonce’s voice is monotone. It sounds like her speaking voice. No range but people who are stuck deprived with nowhere to go in life but follow this dead tone; can’t see otherwise. That’s sad, that slow people can’t follow talents that we have been blessed with and have only one choice. Jay z helping usher who is getting dragged for his trap rap singing album is hilarious. People who woke up is in amazement with Glennis Grace and see what they were missing. SAD.

    • BC October 12, 2018

      I think the girls are really loosing it

  15. SMH October 12, 2018

    Meh. *goes to watch Ciara’s AMA performance again.

  16. Anne October 12, 2018

    She was sanging the heck out of Ava Maria and Halo. Perfect was beautiful as well.

  17. Tweety October 12, 2018

    She will NEVER be that vocalist that stands with just a microphone and blows, wows and keeps the audience spellbound ala Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin. No matter how hard she tries period. Those women carry something Beyoncé does not have.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 12, 2018

      Diana Ross is not a vocalist, she can sing though.

      • Jamon October 12, 2018


    • JOHNVIDAL October 13, 2018

      Nothing but truth. The last real vocal legands are Whitney Mariah and Celine Dion. Beyonce doesn´t posess that thing.

      • bale October 14, 2018

        I don’t believe yet that she’s married
