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.
A part of the Red Bull Music Academy’s NYC series, tickets for this performance sold out quickly but were invite-only for certain guests. No phones were allowed into the performance space and guests were asked to wear white.

As reported by The Daily Beast, Solange’s fans got a treat. She was mere feet away from them and often ventured out into the crowd to sing right into the eyes of a fan.
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.
Needles to say, we can’t wait to see her at the Essence Festival 2017 in July.
