BeyGood Invites ShowMeArtsAcademy to 'Beyoncé: The Formation World Tour' in St. Louis!

By Winnie Caldwell

Have you ever been to a concert? Wait. Have you ever been to a Beyonce concert. If not, you are missing out if you're a member of the BeyHive or not. Not only does Beyonce put on a phenomenal performance, but she does it so gracefully. What she also does gracefully is give back to the community. 

If you are not familiar with her movement, BeyGood, please get familiar.  BeyGood is a charity campaign to raise funds for sick children, unemployed and homeless individuals; as well as raise funds for other charities. 

While Beyonce was in St. Louis, MO for her Formation World Tour, her BeyGood camp actually invited out the youth of Show Me Arts Academy for free! 

The mission of Show Me Arts Academy is to provide multi-cultural artistic development, to under-served youth, ages 5-18, under the guidance of trained professionals. Through exposure, encouragement, and structure, in a creative learning environment, they foster a sense of self-discipline, increased confidence, integrity, and a life-long appreciation for the arts.

Show Me Arts Academy just completed a five city 'Spread the Love Tour' across the country where they sang to uplift thousands of people around the country from St. Louis to Washington DC. September 10, 2016, they had the opportunity to sing personally for the Beyonce crew! Interested in where they sat? In the BeyHive!

They had the best seats in the house right on the stage! These seats were selling at an estimated $1500 per person! That is an estimated value of over $43,000 for everyone with Show Me Arts Academy to enjoy the Beyonce experience for free! Each member of Show Me Arts received a free ticket plus the teachers and even their parents! They were invited not only to enjoy the show but also to perform backstage for her entire crew!

This is an experience the families, students and teachers of Show Me Arts Academy will never forget. Shout out to #BeyGood for giving back while in St. Louis!
