Songstress Beyoncé took time off from tending to daughter Blue Ivy to lend her voice to better the world in a video for World Humanitarian Day.

The 30-year-old singer performed "I Was Here" in front of a live audience at the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York, stunning in a white gown and sleek up-do. 

Beyoncé is donating the video, which was produced by Scott Robinson and codirected by Kenzo Digital and Sophie Muller, as part of the global campaign that seeks to make social media history by sharing 1 billion messages of hope on August 19th to celebrate World Humanitarian Day. 

The campaign celebrates humanitarian work and encourages people worldwide to help others in some way.
