ROUNDUP: Jay-Z @ Carnegie Hall, NYC 2/7/12
He also performed “Glory” and showed the true emotion of the song to the entire audience:
Jay was backed by an orchestra “conducted by Jeri Lynne Johnson (of the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra), and also the Illadelphonics, an ensemble featuring Questlove of the Roots and the singer Bilal among others.” Alicia Keys & Nas both both special guests. Beyonce was in the audience, but didn’t perform.
Rolling Stone has some real meat to the story because they be at the after party, yo.
Ball so hard.
