Celebrating the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela, Beyoncé and JAY-Z headlined the Global Citizens Festival on Sunday in Johannesburg, South Africa. This year's festival, which commemorated what would have been Mandela's 100th birthday, united thousands of attendees including celebrities like Pharrell, Chris Martin, Naomi Campbell, and more.
