Solange Knowles recently became the first recipient of The Lena Horne Prize, a newly created award honoring artists who have made a significant social impact through their work. Knowles received the award at a ceremony held at New York City’s Town Hall on Friday (February 28th). The honor was created in partnership with Lena Horne’s family in which Horne’s daughter Gail Lumet Buckley, and granddaughter Jenny Lumet were in attendance.
From Angel Olsen to Solange, the words, sounds, and themes from women in music this year were immensely vulnerable, politically-conscious, and pave the way for musicians of the approaching 2020s to experiment further.
Solange’s highly anticipated “Orion’s Tour” exceeded all expectations. Solange directed, composed and choreographed her whole set, performing some of her old music and of-course songs from the highly-acclaimed and widely embraced “A Seat at the Table.” The authenticity of every performance combined with the grandiose set-up of Radio City Music Hall made the night of October 2nd, a night to remember and an experience so dear.
Solange’s album A Seat at The Table begins with the smooth yet emphatic “Rise,” a song that encourages the listener to “fall into their ways,” as a form of self-empowerment and growth.
Week 6 of the Fall ’16 season brings indie music to the Scoreboard with Bon Iver and Solange debuts.
The show kicked off at around 3:30 p.m. at The Gallery at Skylight Clarkson SQ but not before Solange Knowles walked in grabbing the attention of the guests and proceeding to the best seat in the house.
