It was a Knowles/Carter family affair over the weekend at the 2018 Wearable Art Gala.

Celebrities flocked to Los Angeles on Saturday night for Tina Lawson’s “Waco to Wakada” gala, an event to raise money for a non-profit art and performance complex. Some of the attendees included Magic Johnson, V Boseman and Lisa Raye, but it was Beyonce and company that really stole the show.

During the event, the Queen Bey, who stunned in a custom Falguni Shane Peacock gown, delivered an emotional speech while accepting the 2018 Waco Theater Humanitarian Award. “I never thought people should receive awards like this because in my opinion, the giving is the reward and that’s enough,” Bey told the crowd.

She added, “I try to keep my charitable work quiet because I feel like these things should come from the goodness of your heart and nothing orchestrated as a campaign. And if I’m honored, I keep it quiet because I feel like I could be doing more.”

Bey wasn’t the only family member taking home an award. The singer’s mother-in-law, Gloria Carter, accepted the Everyday People Award. “She raised four kids and she did the best job with me,” Jay Z said on behalf of his mother.

“My mother is a beautiful human being. She’s a progressive woman, who was always strong. She’s someone who is so strong that she told me, ‘You can do anything in life.’ I believed it so much that I thought she made it up herself,” the rapper told the crowd. “I didn’t realize it was a cliché, but I worked really hard because of her saying. I’m very happy and proud of you.”

And we’ve said it before and we will say it again … Blue Ivy always manages to become the spotlight and she did just that with her insanely adorable antics.

During the event, Jay had to stop his 6-year-old from bidding on items worth upwards of $19,000, including an acrylic painting of a young Sidney Poitier.

In video that surfaced on social media over the weekend, you see Jay hilariously slap her hand down to stop from the major bidding war. Ironically, Blue was bidding against mogul, Tyler Perry.
