Beyonce raised $27,500 ( R389, 499.00)at a charity auction by selling the hat she wore in her 'Formation' video.

The chart-topping singer donated the signed item - which features in the video to the song from her 2016 album 'Lemonade' - to a Heritage Auction that benefits the The Lung Transplant Project, a non-profit organisation that provides support to lung transplant recipients.

The hat features a wide brim and a black ribbon, as well as her signature alongside the words: "All my Love.

Initially, the item was expected to sell for less than $2,000 (R28,327.20) but several bidders became involved with the auction, which meant that the hat ultimately sold for an eye-watering $27,500 (R389,499.00) 

 

Elsewhere at the same auction, Pharrell donated two pairs of adidas Originals and they sold for a combined sum of $11,375 (R16,1110.95) having originally been expected to sell for around $1,000 (R14,163.60).

One of the pairs featured a hot pink colour and alongside the 'Happy' hitmaker's signature, Pharrell wrote: "Let the universe in. Please don't make excuses.

On the same pair of eye-catching sneakers, he also said: "We are nothing without GOD. The universe is one.
