Beyonce, Alicia Keys and Nicki Minaj brought their A Game over the weekend to support Tidal x 1015. These celebrities rocked on stage with their epic waist length braids to bone straight locks.
But the best thing of all is that they and the rest of the music industry came out in full force to support TIDAL at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. The concert enlists popular artists in order to raise funds for Beyone's hubby, Jay Z's foundation called the Robin Hood Foundation.
The Robin Hood Foundation, according to Essence, funds music education in New York City. This is the second annual philanthropic festival since it started. The goal of Jay Z's Robin Hood is to raise awareness and funds in order to create a positive social impact when it comes to efforts towards education.
These three artists and more are chart toppers and they gave all their best in order to raise awareness and money for the cause. Aside from these three divas, Robin Thicke, Lauryn Hill, Common and many more were there to rock the stage.
Dania Diaz, the VP of Philanthropy for Roc Nation (Jay Z's label), says that the "Supporting the community and having positive impact is a TIDAL tenet and mission."
This year's theme is education. And these artists and the organization knows that education advances communities and can become a powerful tool for change.
Last year, TIDAL was able to raise over $1.5 million. The fund raised was used to support organizations focused on social and racial justice, which was last year's theme. On its second year, Robin Hood has helped transform communities in positive ways and has created meaningful results. TIDAL, Robin Hood and Roc Nation is committed to making sure that this year's theme gets the voice it needs to provide education for those who need it most.
Outside the music industry, authorities and celebrities like Emma Watson, Meryl Streep and Michelle Obama are also campaigning for education when it comes to global change around the world.
