Beyoncé is undoubtedly the best living artist on the planet right now. Forget Gaga or Rihanna, nobody can command a stage like Beyoncé can. Her presence and her vocals are incomparable and she has demonstrated this to perfection in her video for I Was Here – the 2011 track from her album “4”, that she has lent to Word Humanitarian Day.
Word Humanitarian Day, which is taking place today (August 19), is all about people helping people and recognises those who face challenges and adversity to help others. It was set up to coincide with the anniversary of the 2003 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq, which killed 22 UN staff.
2012’s campaign is entitled “I Was Here” and its aim is to encourage people to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Beyoncé’s track is the perfect sound for this momentous day, with its touching lyrics and inspiring message. The video was recorded in front of a live audience on August 10 at the United Nations General Assembly
