Tidal X Brooklyn brought fans and artists from all over the world to help support the crisis in the Caribbean, Mexico, and Texas.
Tidal has donated 3.4 million dollars to disaster relief. As the audience walked into the venue, DJ Cypha Sounds entertained the audience with his wit and embracing his Puerto Rican heritage. The benefit concert was sponsored by Bacardi, Monster Products, and DECODE Cannabis.
Opening the show was the radio personality, Angie Martinez. The event included a load of major celebrity performances including Luis Fonzi who performed his biggest hit “Despasito” with Daddy Yankee. Up and coming stars Victory, Princess Nokia and Tee Grizzley were able to capture the audience with their unique styles and music.
As the audience grew with excitement, Fifth Harmony performed their biggest hits such as “Work From Home” and “Angel”. A Boogie With Da Hoodie performed two of his singles, “Drowning” and “Say A”, followed up by Vic Mensa, Joey Bada$$ and Justine Skye.
Pastor Donnie McClurkin reminded us all to have faith in God and work together to overcome obstacles despite the failures we may encounter and Daddy Yankee returned to the stage to perform “Gasolina” plus “Lo Que Paso Paso”.
Everyone jumped out of their seats when Cardi B performed her #1 hit “Bodak Yellow” and remained standing when Chris Brown’s name appeared on the screen. Brown performed “Privacy”, “Party”, and “Questions”.

DJ Khaled brought out some surprise guests such as Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beats, and T.I. Khaled continued to use his infamous quote “ANOTHER ONE” each time he brought out his surprise guests.
But the biggest talk of the night was the performances by Jennifer Lopez and Jay-Z. Lopez performed “On The Floor”, “Jenny On The Block”, “All I Have” and “Feelin’ So Good” with a 6 train mock-up while wearing an all-red ensemble.
Jay-Z told the audience that Tidal has sent five planes to help the disaster crisis in Puerto Rico and how it would not be possible without the fans.However, a snippet of “Bonnie and Clyde ‘03” played, exciting the audience but Jay-Z told the DJ not to play it because the audience will expect Beyoncé to come out. Nonetheless, Jay-Z performed his hits from 4:44 such as “Bam”, “The Story of OJ”, “Family Feud” and classics like “Public Service Announcement” and “N*ggas In Paris”.
Beyoncé sat in the audience to support her husband and jammed along to Stevie Wonder.
