Beyonce recently shot the video for “I was Here” on the floor of the U. N. General Assembly as reported by NYdailyNews. She did this performance in order to promote World Humanitarian Day. The U.N. General Assembly created World Humanitarian Day in 2008 to commemorate the Aug. 19, 2003, killing of 22 people in an attack on the U.N. offices in Baghdad.
Beginning Aug. 19, the video of the song can be seen on the star’s official web site, as well as at www.whd-iwashere.org. The latter site aims to provide a place for people to write about individual acts of good they’ve performed, as well as encourage others to come up with their own.
Beyonce performed in front of a custom screen, specially created for the event. As she sang, the screen filled with images of U.N. aid workers on the scene in various wars, famines, and floods around the world. Check put the pics.
