People often complain that celebrities waste their money on frivolous things like cars and clothes and don’t use their fame as a platform for sending powerful, important messages to their fans. Nobody but nobody can peg such allegations on singing icon Beyoncé because she has joined the United Nations in support of World Humanitarian Day.
World Humanitarian Day will take place on August 19th. It aims to encourage people all over the world be perform kind acts that will benefit those living in countries torn apart by war, famine, illness and poverty. To help with this cause, Beyoncé will be filming the music video for her new song, “I Was Here,” at the UN General Assembly Hall in New York in front of a live audience and then donating the video to World Humanitarian Day so that they can use it to promote their cause.
