?We are thrilled to collaborate with Beyonc?, Solange and the entire Knowles Family to air this momentous concert on Fuse, benefiting the families devastated by Hurricane Ike,? said Matt Farber, EVP, Programming, Development & Digital. ?Bringing these two accomplished sisters together on one stage for the first time not only provides our viewers with a great concert, it also gives back to a community in need during challenging times.?

One of 2008’s most anticipated new album releases, “I AM? SASHA FIERCE” is Beyonc?’s first studio collection since her Grammy?-winning multi-platinum-selling album, B’Day. Beginning her career as a member of Destiny?s Child, her first full-length solo debut album, 2003?s Dangerously in Love, went multi-platinum and garnered five Grammy? wins. She went on to tour internationally to sold-out arenas, starred in ?Dream Girls? and most recently played the part of R&B legend Etta James in Darnell James? ?Cadillac Records? opening in theatres nationwide in December.
Solange, the classically trained dancer got her start by traveling the world as a backup dancer for (her big sister?s group) Destiny?s Child. She released her first solo album Solo Star on Columbia Records and after taking some time off for marriage and motherhood, Solange is back with her sophomore album. Capturing a time when music was melodic and soulful, but with a modern twist, Sol-Angel & the Hadley St. Dreams dropped in August 2008.
