Beyonce's "I Was Here" World Humanitarian Day VIDEO

Beyonce's "I Was Here" World Humanitarian Day video dropped a day early.  Check out the world premiere inside...

World Humanitarian Day is tomorrow (August 19).  And Beyonce Knowles filmed her "I Was Here" video, in honor of the special day, last week in front of a live audience at the United Nations General Assembly Hall.

The Kenzo Digital & Sophie Muller-directed video showcases Beyonce belting out her Diane Warren-penned song on stage in a white mini-sequined floor length Marc Bouwer gown (Pre-Fall collection).  And images of kids and adults helping others all around the world are flashed on a large screen behind her.

Check out the video above, plus Bey talking about why she got involved with this particular cause HERE.

Ppl have so many negative

Ppl have so many negative things to say about a person who is trying to do and bring some good into the world and other ppl lives, the same negative ppl who criticize her about her performance and her message are the same ppl who lack in helping others...you talk about her, but what organizations have you joined? how many of you have helped serve homeless ppl on thanksgiving and Christmas? how many of you donate to children w/o clothes and toys? probably less than 25% of you on this site, but instead of really trying to listen to her message, you judge her, smh i don't get it? somebody like seriously, and i want someone who truly dislikes her or thinks she's a horrible person to answer this...what's wrong with her trying to sing about making a change, don't judge her because of the other music she sings, because how many of you listen to rap/r&b monday through saturday, but on sunday your singing about God, MJ song about making a change several times and still sung about love,sex and etc i mean really! she's human we dont always say the right things or do the right things, but when a person decides to do something good don't jude them or punish them for it, its funny though because if she was just rich, and didn't care about anybody but her self, ppl would still have something to say, but for some enocouraging words...that was a beautiful performance, and that song touches me every time, and i am so proud of her, trust beyonce is a successful and beautiful as she is because God know's who to bless with fam and money, he knows who would do that position justice, if she was selfish, stuck up, un kind hearted, and un humble like majority of you, she wouldn't be where she is today, so that should explain why most of you are on a blog site posting about someone who finds you irrelevant, your negativity doesnt count, this woman has been and is going more places than your local metro will allow you to go, instead of hating her or on her, try doing something positive with your life

Instead of going by what you

Instead of going by what you "think"or guess, go by what you SEE...her trying to make a difference and be positive. You don't know what her intentions are by doing this video. At least its not a song about selling drugs and twirkin in the club, which half y'all on here rock to. But have the nerve to down someone for at least attempting to make a difference.

Your stupid ass grow the fuck up and leave beyonce name out if you don't have nothing good to say and i am right black people always say dumb shit. Look at all these profile picture mostly black people hating

And I love how every time

And I love how every time someone doesn't worship everything Bey does, it's automatically hate. No. People are just not feeling it. Period. This is coming from a Beyonce fan: NOT feeling the video.

Shake off the haterraid, it

Shake off the haterraid, it doesn't look good on any of you. Whether she lends her voice, time or money, it's more than any of you are doing. If you're not part of the problem, trying to come up with a solution and criticizing on the sidelines, AINT GONNA GET IT!!!!

I agree that people who

I agree that people who aren't trying to contribute to the cause have little room to criticize. And of course, no one, no matter how rich or famous, is obligated to do anything they don't want to. But let's be real, celebs are held more accountable for their philanthropy because they have more to give. If I had "her voice, time, or money" I promise you I'd be contributing in all kinds of ways. Just sayin.

I really don't care for the

I really don't care for the song because the message is unattractive. Yes, we need to lend a helping hand and do for others out of love, but not so "everyone will know I was here." :(

I kind of felt the same way

I kind of felt the same way when I heard the song. I think the song had a different purpose, and she just used it for this humanitarian cause since it's the only song she has that relates. It kind of reminds me of the Hurricane Katrina telethon some years back when she did the Halo song. The lyrics didn't really fit but that song was all she had. Still, she looks lovely and the fact that she's using her talents for something positive is always a good thing in my book.

I fully understand your mission, and the urgency of your work, but, if you truly want to succeed with the Humanity Project, you’ll need to invite other women to get on board, because this is a huge task! … And remember “There is a lot of power in unity” Also, please continue to pour out your blessings on us; your Wisdom! Thank you, for being you!

Hell Yeah. My thoughts exactly. I can picture it now, her accepting the award, giving a fake ass insincere ass speech in her mockery of a voice putting on a fake ass 1 tear cry saying "I REALLY DIDN'T EXPECT THIS, I JUST WANTED TO HELP THE WORLD, HELP THE WORLD", then goes backstage with a big ass grin on her face, and then slaps hands with Jay, and say. "GOT EM". SMH SMH

This right here was not all that. Sorry. Why the tight ass dress? I could see if she had some footage of herself in some of the countries helping out.

AMAZING SO INSPIRATIONAL!!

AMAZING SO INSPIRATIONAL!! BEYONCE SANG AND LOOKED BEAUTIFUL :)

This would've been a more

This would've been a more meaningful video if she wasn't in it. They shoud have just played the song to the images to get a more serious vibe. This video is Beyonce being " BEYONCE" instead of Beyonce being Bey(hopefully you got clarity out of that). The way she walks out and strikes a pose then gives that stupid look in the beginning, I just can't with this girl. People screaming in the audience as if this was a regular concert. Too self promoting and narcissistic for me.
Ms.Thangfromthe5thflr's picture

The despair, pain and

The despair, pain and tragedies projected on the screen are very far removed from the Illuminati, one dimensional, self-promoting, yachting, big spender, glamorous gown Beyonce. She woudave been better served being outdoors instead of on stage with all that pain projected in the bckground. Did nothing for me. The two are too far removed. It's Byonce promoting Beyonce with the minimal suggestive sexual poses. All thse shotsof her ass. Nothing else.

Was Beyonce "really there"

Was Beyonce "really there" because that video looked like a hologram of her performing?? I love Bey, but now she is starting to insult our intelligence.
tori's picture

You must not be intelligent

You must not be intelligent cause that something dumb to say you know damn well she was there what the hell she need a hologram there for. I know you was seeing pictures of her all week.

That is my point!!!! Of

That is my point!!!! Of course she was there but the video of her versus the footage they used for the disaster clips made it look like she didn't perform, it looked like Tupac's hologram at coachella.
