Beyoncé selflessly donated her personal Diane Warren-penned ballad, “I Was Here,” to a greater cause–World Humanitarian Day. A video was subsequently filmed at the United Nations’ General Assembly Hall before a live crowd of elites and fans.
The unconventional video begins quite dramatically; Mrs. Carter struts on stage in a form-fitting glittery white gown before belting out the emotional lyrics. A montage of deeds done by world humanitarians and destruction caused by natural disasters is shown in the background.
Ridley Scott & Associates produced the video, and Kenzo Digital, responsible for Bey’s 2011 Billboard Awards performance, and Sophie Muller, director of Bey’s “Déjà Vu,” “Ring The Alarm” and “Broken-Hearted Girl” videos, directed the video.
