Washington: Beyonce Knowles is collaborating with the United Nations and humanitarian aid organizations on a global campaign to encourage people around the world to get involved.

The international pop star and songwriter Diane Warren will donate a video of “I Was Here” that will be filmed in the UN General Assembly Hall in New York in front of a live audience, Fox News reported.

The video will premiere August 19 on World Humanitarian Day, and the UN hopes it will help the campaign reach 1 billion people.

The campaign website launched on Thursday and allows people to share individual acts of good.

Beyonce said in the statement that World Humanitarian Day is a chance to work together and “this is our time to leave our mark on the world.”
