Beyonce unveils “I Was Here” for World Humanitarian Day

Beyonce hopes to reach 1 billion people on one day – tomorrow, Aug. 19 – with one message of hope as part of her efforts to launch a global campaign to celebrate humanitarian work and encourage people worldwide to help others in some way.

Beyoncé filmed the song in front of a live audience at the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York earlier this month.
