Over the weekend, the second annual Tidal X charity concert occurred and featured performances from Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, and Blood Orange. All proceeds from the concert went to benefit the Robin Hood Foundation, as well as other education nonprofits.
According to the company website, the Robin Hood Foundation is "New York's largest poverty-fighting organization, and since 1988 has focused on finding, funding and creating programs and schools that generate meaningful results for families in New York's poorest neighborhoods. Since its founding, Robin Hood has raised more than $2.5 billion in dollars, goods and services to provide hundreds of the most effective soup kitchens, homeless shelters, schools, job-training programs and other vital services that give New York's neediest citizens the tools they need to build better lives."
Also performing at the event were Alicia Keys, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Common, TIP, DNCE, Robin Thicke, Emeli Sandé, Prince Royce, Salva, Cipha Sounds, Ross One, Angie Martinez, Bebe Rexha, Marc E. Bassy, Lil Yachty, Dave East, Kevin Garrett, Danielle Bradbery, Sir The Baptist, and Levi Carter.
During the performance, Beyonce sustained an ear injury, which caused her to bleed, but she finished the show. Apparently the injury occurred from her ripping out an earing. Since then, a number of fans of the performer have begun to cut their ears and share the photos on social media with the #CutForBeyonce.
