Beyoncé has donated her album track ‘I Was Here’ in support of World Humanitarian Day in a bid to encourage people around the globe to do something positive for others. The 30-year-old star has been a long-time supporter of a host of charitable causes. Beyoncé will also record a video for the track at the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York City in front of a live audience on the 19th of August. She said ‘We all see the headlines and we think what can I really do to help? World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity for all of us to work together to make a difference. This is our time to leave our mark on the world and show that we were here and we care.’
The campaign website which launched yesterday, encourages people to share their acts of good will, in the hope the message will reach someone. Beyoncé’s latest act of good will comes after she announced plans to star in a documentary about her life and career. The Crazy In Love singer is to direct, produce and appear in the film which will include concert footage, backstage scenes and interviews with her and her loved ones about her life.
