Yesterday marked World Humanitarian Day: “One day. One message. One goal. To inspire people all around the world to do something good, no matter how big or small, for someone else.”
Singer Beyonce Knowles works closely with the United Nations, which is something she is very passionate about, while taking a stand to encourage others to help out and give back. During the taped performance at the U.N. General Assembly on August 10, Beyonce showed a powerful force and true emotion within her performance and lyrics of the song. Behind her, was a large screen showing moments of bravery, struggle and survival.
Other celebrities such as Justin Bieber and Rihanna took their voice to Twitter:

With World Humanitarian Day coming up on Sunday August 19, Beyonce has delivered a quiet yet powerful message in a new video.
In the black and white clip, the singer stands in a field looking very natural with her hair in braids. There, she tells her viewers to take action and be good to one another.
“On Aug. 19, it’s high time we rise together. Do one thing for another human being. Nothing is too small,” she she says in the video. “It begins with each of us. Make your mark and say, ‘I was here.’”
The video then shows footage of various humanitarian projects ranging from smiling children in school to people holding hands. It’s a simple clip. But with Beyonce backing the campaign, it sure is powerful.
A video of Bey performing the power ballad ‘I Was Here, which was written by Diane Warren, will be donated and aired in the Nations’ General Assembly Hall in New York City.
And continuing to make a positive change in the world, Queen B inspires us all!
