And she didn't disappoint.  Well, not to most people there.

The Grammy Award winner ran through a medley of her hits that included, “Stay” “Birthday Cake,” “Love On The Brain,” “Diamonds,” “FourFiveSeconds” and “Desperado” for the education benefit. Rih joined the Global Citizens organization to fight against extreme poverty and inequality around the world, and support approaches that will make life more sustainable for people and the planet.

Some folks weren't here for it though:


Clearly, you can't please everyone.


Before hitting the stage yesterday, Rih was appointed Ambassador of Global Citizen, which teamed up with her Clara Lionel Foundation for a partnership to advocate for children’s education. She tweeted,“Honored to join @GPforEducation & @GlblCtzn team! Together w/@ClaraLionelFDN, we'll make education accessible for all! #EducationCannotWait” Sweet! Rih loves the kids!
