Beyoncé Announces Fund to Benefit Children of Flint Michigan

Between her new groundbreaking new single Formation and accompanying video, her explosive performance at last night’s Super Bowl 50 halftime show alongside Coldplay and Bruno Mars, and the announcement of her new Formation World Tour, Beyoncé once again reminded us why she is queen of the world this past weekend.

The pop superstar also announced a fund to benefit children of Flint, Michigan as she revealed the world tour that will include a show at Detroit’s Ford Field on May 29.

Beyoncé unveiled the Formation World Tour on Sunday on one of the most high-profile platforms imaginable, announcing the coming run in a commercial that aired after her mind-blowing Super Bowl halftime performance with Coldplay.

Tickets for the Ford Field show will go on sale Feb. 22. Prices haven’t been announced. American Express card holders can buy tickets for the Detroit show starting Feb. 15.

The Formation World Tour will kick off April 27 in Miami. As part of the upcoming run, the singer is asking fans to keep tabs on her @beygood Twitter feed for details on helping young Flint residents in need.

Beyoncé and the United Way are “partnering with the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to create a fund that will address long-term developmental, education, nutrition and health needs of the children affected by the Flint water crisis,” the star’s team said in a statement Sundaynight. The Detroit date will be her first show in the area since a July 2013 concert at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

The force of nature that is Beyoncé Giselle Knowles just continues to leap over the bar of expectation that can only be set by herself. Not only is she at the top of the music industry, she is using that top spot to bring awareness to crucial social issues that are taking place in this country. Well done, Bey!
