Greater than a hundred and fifty performers on point supported her.

On the back of wide praise for her two-hour performance at the Coachella music festival, Beyoncé on Monday said she was offering $100,000 in scholarship money to students at four historically black colleges and universities. Now, she's also giving some of these schools thousands to provide students with scholarships. She also hopes that it will encourage young kids to enroll in our fantastic Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The energy-filled production put the spotlight on art and culture, mixing the ancient and the modern, which resonated masterfully through the marching band, performance art, choir and dance.

This year, Coachella was gracious enough to step aside and allow Beyoncé to bless us mere mortals with Beychella. The disciplines will include literature, creative arts, African-American studies, science, education, business, communications, social sciences, computer science and engineering. All applicants must maintain a 3.5 GPA or above. The superstar was due to perform previous year but had to postpone because she was pregnant with her twins, Sir and Rumi.
