Jay-Z Gets Emotional During Performance Of Blue Ivy Track ‘Glory’

Jay-Z gave an emotional performance last night of his new track ‘Glory,’ recorded especially for his daughter Blue Ivy, during his historic performance at Carnegie Hall.

The hip-hop mogul performed the first of two shows at the prestigious venue in association with his Shawn Carter Foundation. Taking to the stage in a white tuxedo, Jay received a standing ovation before he launched into ‘PSA,’ ‘Thank You’ and ‘Heart of the City,’ accompanied by a 36-piece orchestra.

He was also joined on stage by Alicia Keys for ‘Empire State Of Mind’ and Nas for ‘N.Y. State Of Mind.’

Nas and Alicia also collaborated on ‘If I Ruled The World (Imagine That),’ before Jay gave a performance of heartfelt ‘Glory.’

“I didn’t think I was gonna make it through that one. That was tough,” Hov told the audience of the song he wrote for newborn daughter Blue last month.

Also in attendance was Jay’s wife Beyonce, who looked incredible in a red figure-hugging dress, showing off her post-birth body.

Awwww so sweet!
