Marvel at Beyoncé’s ‘I Was Here’ United Nations Performance Video

Last week, Beyoncé performed “I Was Here” at the United Nations to celebrate World Humanitarian Day. While we got to see a few photos of her wearing a floor-length sparkly white gown, we didn’t get to see actual footage until yesterday, when she released a video of her performance on her website. You really should watch it for yourself, mainly to see the truly heart-rending shots of U.N. workers feeding children and rescuing flood victims projected dramatically onto a huge screen behind a singing Beyoncé. But it’s also worth paying our respects to Beyoncé’s ass in her dress, which is miraculous in an entirely different way.
