Beyonce - I Was Here
With elements of Aretha, Ella, Tina, and Whitney displayed in every performance she gives, there is no doubt that Beyonce is one of the most talented artists of all time. She’s had smash hit singles, won 16 Grammys and 11 VMAs, but that does not define her true success. Beyonce’s greatest accomplishment is not her critical acclaim or her massive commercial triumph; it is her dedication to making the world a better place. Whether it is a simple act of kindness or starting a charity or fundraiser to save lives, Beyonce has always been working to help others.
Her latest contribution to society was a music video for her new single, “I Was Here,” that will help raise awareness for World Humanitarian Day (August 19th), which encourages people to go out of their way to help others. The song’s original video is an inspiring clip showing how Beyonce has grown over time as an artist, philanthropist, and humanitarian. It shows her musical heroes that she was lucky enough to meet and work with as well as the people that she has helped along the way. The entire video displays Beyonce living out a lyric of the song, “I want to leave my footprints on the sands of time.” The new video is a simple video of Beyonce performing the song live. The screen behind her shows clips of needy people being helped. The purpose of the video is to show that people need to help each other to make the world a more united, peaceful place.
Help Beyonce help others! Spread the message all day, and go do something nice for someone else! No act of kindness is too small!
