Beyoncé Makes Her Mark at ‘I Was Here’ Video Shoot

Beyoncé

Beyoncé commanded the spotlight while filming the video for “I Was Here” at the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York on Friday. Glowing in a white gown, the pop diva put her powerful pipes on display as she belted out the empowering ballad off her 2011 album 4. The live performance video will be released on World Humanitarian Day, August 19.

“WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!! Beyonce killed it at the UN!!!” tweeted “I Was Here” songwriter Diane Warren. “Tonite was one of the best experiences ever.”

CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who interviewed B for “Anderson Cooper 360″ as well as his daytime talk show “Anderson Live,” praised her performance. “Wow, @Beyonce just performed in the UN General Assembly. She was awesome,” he wrote.

The video was helmed by production company Ridley Scott & Associates and directors Kenzo Digital and Sophie Muller. The campaign aims to reach 1 billion people with a single message when it launches globally on August 19.

    This song is one of the best of this decade so far. It’s just do beautiful and, I may not use Beyonce but she completely slays it with her vocals. The lyrics, her vocals and the production hit falls into a timeless sync with each other. Just amazing.

    Hopefully they try and push this as a proper single, at least so that it can get resent in for the Grammys.

    ok to be honest i love me some Aaliyah, but to answer the question were she would be if she was still with us…i honestly don’t think she would have reached these hights Beyonce has.

    @2bad2bme, I think so too because her voice as well as her production was getting bigger.

  15. Beyonce's Weave (& Her "HIVE" of Head-Lice)

    This bitch is so fake, I cannot believe she would use a Humanitarian gig to promote her song. The worst part is she is talking about herself in the song and it’s supposed to be a humanitarian thing?? What a selfish cow.

    @Beyonce’s Weave (& Her “HIVE” of Head-Lice)Why is it whenever this woman does something positive people like you run in to spew negativity? She has donated millions to charity rather her motives where good or bad she has still helped someone what have you done to help? Absolutely nothing and I say that because NOBODY who is trying to do something positive has time to sit around and talk so negatively about someone saint or devil. Get your life though.

  18. WHD Supporter and Bey Stan

    WOW….a lot of you on here are so IRATE for no reason. She’s doing something to make a difference in the world. The song was DONATED, do your research first please. While you’re sitting behind your phone or computer upset because you think she’s being “fake” she’s somewhere trying to help another human being. how about you go do something to make a difference as well. Blacks are ALWAYS trying to tear other blacks down instead of being supportive. Anyways, August 19th do something somewhere to help someone, any little thing counts.

    She took her song, which was suppose to make her money and turned it around to help others…how is this FAKE OR SELFISH?!?!?! Even if she is faking-at least her whole body, from HEAD-TO-TOE (COUGHSNICKIMINAJ) is not fake….singing HORRIBLE POP HOOKS! She is supporting our country! Y’all support fake tits, ass, skin, hair, lyrics—you bitches are FAKE TOO.
