  • Watch this video interview with the singer as she reveals her biggest inspiration

    Beyonce has revealed her biggest inspiration in a new video interview as part of the Chime for Change campaign.

    The singer, who is the co-founder and artistic director of the Gucci founded girls’ and women’s empowerment initiative, talks female solidarity in the clip and says that her mother, Tina Knowles, inspires her the most because she sees ‘the beauty in every human being’.

    She says of her mum: ‘My mother always sees the beauty in every human being. I think her gift is understanding and helping people get to their best selves, her gift is finding the best qualities in every human being.’


    The video comes just two weeks after it was announced that the songstress will headline a music concert for Chime for Change this summer at London’s Twickenham Stadium. The gig, which is called Sound of Change Live and also sees the likes of Ellie Goulding, Florence and the Machine, Haim and Rita Ora performing, will take place on 1st June and be broadcast globally to raise funds and awareness for projects supporting women around the world.

    Other co-founders of the powerful campaign include Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini and actress Salma Hayek-Pinault. Visit the Chime for Change website or Ticketmaster now to buy tickets to the concert. And in a first, ticket buyers will have the opportunity to donate the value of their ticket to a non-profit organisation of their choice.
