When FKA twigs performed at Carnegie Hall Monday, she wore a white suit with the occasional sparkling lines of bling on the fabric.

Onstage she performed "Hide" and her new song "Good to Love," hinting that fiancé Robert Pattinson is perhaps doing some things well when they are alone together. As she performed, her arms flailed in dance. And partway through her sexy spin, she threw off her jacket and revealed a top that left little to the imagination about her figure.

“She's wonderful, very unusual," said Tibet expert Robert Thurman, who MC'd the event and was joined by his daughter Uma at his table at the afterparty for the Tibet House US 26th Annual Benefit Concert, held at Gotham Hall. "She has amazing movement and an amazing voice. She's really good, thoughtful, marvelous."

"I went to see her in Brooklyn last year in an abandoned factory," Glass, who booked the talent at the event, said. "And I was so impressed with her. I sent her a message that I wanted her to come to the Tibet House Concert and she came to my house. She's an artistic young woman, very much a professional. Her performance was fantastic. Beautiful singing. I saw the dancing in Brooklyn, but I didn’t think she was going to do it here. You have to remember that many important musicians wouldn't play Carnegie Hall in their whole lives."

At the event Iggy Pop sang a tribute to his parents – "I should have loved you more" – to a score by Glass that didn't leave a dry eye in the house. Pop then performed two songs by his late friend David Bowie – "The Jean Genie" and "Tonight." And while guards in red jackets from Carnegie Hall attempted to stop revelers from rushing the stage, the audience crowded forward and broke into dance.

Twigs attended the afterparty, as did Uma Thurman, who hurried to the stage when her father was having trouble auctioning a white guitar signed by all the well-known performers. Once it sold, the actress gave her dad a warm hug.
