"I want to leave my footprints in the sands of time’ and it basically is all of our dreams, I think. And that’s leaving our mark on the world. I feel like we all want to know that our life meant something."
In honor of World Humanitarian Day, Singer Beyoncé and aid organizations are using social media to reach over 1 billion people to share one simple message. Beyonce recorded her music video "I Was Here," at the U.N.'s General Assembly Hall. Premiering officially today in Times Square, "I Was Here" declares the need to make a lasting change. Whether doing something big or small, being proactive will enlighten our lives and those around us. World Humanitarian Day celebrates the lives lost in making the world a better place. Many aid workers and volunteers are lost every year helping others including 22 U.N. workings in Bagdhad, 19 volunteers in Somalia, and countless others in captivity, just to name a few.
She arrived at the U.N. wearing an all white Alexander McQueen peplum waist pencil dress with bell sleeves. Accentuating her inner beauty, Beyoncé wore minimal make up with a sleek high ponytail. She completed the outfit with no accessories and tri-colour Ruthie Davis ‘Boardwalk’s platform peep-toes. Her flawless style and natural beauty left me in complete awe.
For her music video she changed into a stunning white sequined gown by Marc Bouwery from his Pre-Fall 2012 collection. Bouwery's dress accentuated every curve on Bey's body yet somehow remained understated. The glistening white and the texture brought out Bey's silhouette perfectly with slightly exaggerated shoulders and form fitting cut. Bey looked angelic against the moving IMAX images of humanitarians in action.
Beyoncé is currently out here proving why she’s one of the best. Over the weekend, Beyoncé was spotted arriving at the UN General Assembly in New York for her live taping of “I Was Here”. Beyoncé will premiere the new video on Humanitarian Day.

Will you join to say you were here to do something positve?
According to The Sun, Beyoncé is currently working in the studio with Kanye West and Hit-Boy on her yet untitled fifth album in New York. But here is the kicker; Beyoncé has reportedly spent thousands hiring out the whole entire studio. She‘s hired security on all the doors to guarantee no leaks occur. A source has also said Beyoncé is spending 14-hour days in the studio not allowing anyone to leave till everything is perfect.
Knowing Beyoncé and her work ethic I wouldn’t put any of this past her. I can only imagine what she’s recording for this album. Her latest album 4 is her best body of work to date. Plus she is one of the only artists I know who drops an album better then their last. You may think that’s not a big deal, but just go listen to Usher’s latest album and you’ll see what I mean.
