Solange has been performing songs from A Seat at the Table for months now, at festivals and intimate museum venues. But her performance Thursday night at New York City's Guggenheim Museum was more like a church service, according to reports.

The singer teased rehearsals for the show earlier in the week, which involved over two dozen Black women doing choreography to a brass band in the background.

They note that after the show, Solange told the audience, “I’m so glad to see your faces today—these are the faces I wrote the record for.”

On Twitter, the response after the show was of awe and jubilation from the moving performance.
