In honor of World Humanitarian Day, Beyonce has linked up with the United Nations for an awareness-raising campaign titled "I Was Here." The singer will debut the music video for her song, of the same name, on the UN's website Sunday, featuring a live performance in General Assembly Hall at the United Nations filmed on Aug. 10.
Fans can also help raise awareness for the day through the partnered website whd-iwashere.org, where they're encouraged to join Beyonce in sending "the biggest social media message in history," while spreading good deeds in their community and abroad. The social media blast will be sent out on Sunday followed by the "I Was Here" special video debut at 9 a.m.
