Beyoncé's Historic Coachella Performance Culminates In A New Scholarship Program

Beyoncé wore five custom Balmain outfits during her Coachella performance

The response to Bey's performance was one of unanimous awe, as she forever reinvented Coachella's "white people stage" as Vince Staples called it and also the color yellow.

Lawson took to Instagram to let the world know she stands corrected by posting a lengthy, intimate conversation she had with her daughter before her historic performance on Saturday (April 14), which drew inspiration from HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). (To that end, the singer has announced $100,000 scholarships to four such colleges, proving she really is the Queen). Bey also added that she hoped the performance would encourage enrollment at HBCUs. HBCUs are institutions of higher education in the United States that were established before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with the intention of primarily serving the African-American community.

All 5 accused in Makkah Masjid blast acquitted
NIA seems to have done a complete turnaround in pursuing these cases after the BJP led NDA government came to power. The court in Hyderabad's Nampally cited lack of evidence as the reason behind the acquittal.

This year, Coachella was gracious enough to step aside and allow Beyoncé to bless us mere mortals with Beychella.

After making history as the first black woman to headline Coachella, Beyoncé has expanded the scholarship program she launched previous year with new donations to four traditionally black universities. All applicants must maintain a 3.5 GPA or above. "The show, with its homage to excellence in education, was a celebration of the homecoming weekend experience, the highest display of college pride", a statement on Beyoncé's website reads. Each university will select its own finalists, with the winners set to be announced this summer.

Facebook To Reward Users Who Report Bugs And Leaks
Facebook gets some data on non-users from people on its network, such as when a user uploads email addresses of friends. If everything on Facebook only functioned with an informed "opt in" from users, the company's business doesn't work.

But the singer was in for a surprise herself.

The singer established the program in 2017 to mark the one-year anniversary of her 2016 visual album, "Lemonade".
