Beyoncé didn’t let a bleeding ear stop her show at the TIDAL X: 1015 charity concert held at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center Saturday night.
It appears that an earring may have ripped her ear, and in a clip from the show, Bey is seen noticing the blood while performing “Haunted.” She remains unfazed as she wipes her ear, and continues to sing.

The “Formation” star also took a moment to encourage concertgoers to get out and vote.
“Doing nothing right now is not an option, y’all,” she told the audience. “I know it seems like things are bad, but if you think that can’t get worse just ask your grandparents. Remember Barack Obama is our President. You made that happen, young people made that happen.”
She continued. “We are not helpless. The fire is still burning. Please go out and vote this November. Too many people have died and sacrificed so much for us to have our voice, we have to use it. Get in formation. Use our voices to do something great for our children.”
The concert also featured appearances from Nicki Minaj, T.I., Lauryn Hill, Common and more. All proceeds raised were given to the Robin Hood Foundation, whose mission is to fight poverty.
