Jay-Z Performs ‘Glory’ at Carnegie Hall [Video]

Jay-Z

Jay-Z painted Carnegie Hall blue in honor of his daughter Blue Ivy Carter. Backed by a 36-piece orchestra, the hip-hop mogul performed the Neptunes-produced dedication to his month-old baby for the first time at the famed New York City venue on Monday night.

“I didn’t think I was gonna make it through that one. That was tough,” said a dapper Jay, who was overcome with emotion as he rapped the personal lyrics.

He’ll do it again tonight, with a second show benefitting the United Way of New York City and the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.

    That was dope. Pharrell and Jay-Z make a great team. Kanye, Clark, Pharrell, & Just Blaze were Jay’s best producers.

    @sbz i feel ya, i thought it was an intimate, personal song, but performing it makes it out like they are going to pimp this baby, which is unlike the private couple, but i guess they are going to give the world what we want and that is to see this baby, ……

    Jay-z is an example of a rare superstar; not the finale. No one to date (who has a deal) is or was better.

    I saw a lot of website but I think this one holds something special in it. “The only thing one can do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself.” by Oscar Fingall O’Flahertie Wills Wilde.
