Beyonce stopped by The United Nations yesterday evening to perform her song “I Was Here” in honor of World Humanitarian Day, and if the initial reports are to be believed, her appearance went very well. Luckily, we won’t have to take the word of the hundreds who were on hand, however, because it was all taped in order to serve as the singer’s new music video.
According to The Huffington Post, the clip will debut on August 19, which is officially World Humanitarian Day, and hopefully, it will serve as an inspiration for those who want to help make the world a safer and better place. The Diane Warren-penned track first appeared on Beyonce’s album 4. Its call to help and improve the lives of others makes it a natural fit for the United Nations and a natural fit for World Humanitarian Day.
Fame affords one opportunities to do a lot of different things. Beyonce has embraced many of those possibilities from movies to living the high life, but more importantly, she’s also embraced the role of humanitarian. She consistently looks for good causes to champion and carries herself with class, grace and dignity. Thus, I can’t think of anyone better to play at the United Nations on World Humanitarian Day.
To watch Beyonce perform “I Was Here”, you can take a look at the video below. Or you can simply wait a little more than a week until the UN performance is available…
