The carter family Jay-z and Beyoncé shuts down global concert in South Africa The couple took the stage shortly after Oprah delivered a powerful keynote address recognizing the legacy of the late South African president and anti-apartheid leader. After the crowd impatiently chanted "Beyoncé" for several minutes, the couple emerged in stunning new costumes and opened with a soul-stirring rendition of Jay-Z's hit song, "Holy Grail." You can watch the opening medley below, which includes the aforementioned song, plus "Pt. II (On the Run)" and "'03 Bonnie & Clyde." While the duo changed into new costumes, a montage of videos from Beyoncé and Jay-Z's trip to Jamaica earlier this year plus footage of Mandela and Jay-Z's trip to Angola and South Africa in 2006 played in the background. The parents to six-year-old Blue Ivy and one-year-old twins Rumi and Sir returned to the stage to perform "Apeshit" from their joint album before bringing out surprise guests Pharrell Williams, who joined Jay-Z to rap his verse on "Nice" from Everything Is Love, and Ed Sheeran, who performed "Perfect Duet" alongside Beyoncé. Bey also brought out the Tofo Tofo Dance Group, the three Mozambican men who helped choreograph her "Run The World" video. @beyonce @jayzinho10 @jay-z @carterfamilia @carter @Southafrica @globalconcert @Africa @music @rocnation @entertainment @rap @blues @r&b @rich @Mandela @apartheid @freedom @Johannesburg @lagos @Accra @portharcourt @vienna @Venice @Au @jborg @nasty_csa @queenbey @beehive @riri_tone @motivation @enter10ment @Illuminati @illumination @tundeednut @trending @richcouple
