Beyonce’s “I Was Here” Video Might Blow Your Mind

    Today is World Humanitarian Day, and Beyoncé is using her considerable popularity to spread the word. Her video for “I Was Here,” off last year’s 4, is simple and powerful: Beyoncé gives an impeccable live performance of the song at the United Nations General Assembly in NYC as an IMAX-like screen behind her shows images of international relief efforts. On the album, “I Was Here” is pompous and a little cloying; live and accompanied by those images, it’s got the same change-the-world flavor as Michael Jackson’s “Man In The Mirror.” Watch the video below.
