Last night Jay-Z went to Carnegie Hall to perform a concert benefiting the United Way of New York City and the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation. Hova was joined by Alicia Keys, Nas, and a 36-piece orchestra on stage. And back stage, he was joined by Liza Minnelli.
Jay-Z gave the legendary actress a shout out during the show, saying:
“I’d like to give a special shout-out to Liza Minnelli in the house tonight.”
The two even posed for a picture together.
But Liza Minnelli wasn’t the only big name in the house. C.C. Sebathia was in the crowd, Questlove of the Roots was on the stage, and as the Inquisitr reported earlier, Beyonce made her first post-baby appearance at Carnegie Hall last night. (You can see photos here.) It’s not clear if little Blue Ivy attended the concert with her mother, but Jay-Z did perform his tribute to his baby girl.
Here’s Jay-Z singing “Glory” at Carnegie Hall.
After singing “Glory,” Jay-Z said:
“I didn’t think I was gonna make it through that one. That one was tough.”
