Beyonce never stops! The proud mom to baby Blue Ivy isn’t just a singer, actress, dancer and master letter writer. She’s stepping up her activism and teaming up with the United Nations to recognize World Humanitarian Day.

The Sacramento Bee reports that Queen Bey and love song writer extraordinaire Diane Warren will donate a video of her power ballad ‘I Was Here.’ The clip will be filmed in the U.N. General Assembly Hall in New York City in front of a live (and lucky!) audience. The music video will premiere on World Humanitarian Day, Aug. 19, and the United Nations is hoping the clip will reach 1 billion viewers. Knowing that Beyonce pretty much accomplishes everything she sets her mind to, we’re pretty confident that they’ll reach their goal.

The campaign’s website launched today (Aug. 2), with its main feature being users sharing stories of their own acts of kindness. In a statement about World Humanitarian Day, the living legend said, “This is our time to leave our mark on the world.” Beyonce also promoted the campaign on her own website, writing, “On the 19th of August 2012, we rise together — for each other. Do one thing. Nothing is too small. Do one thing for another human being.”

Beyonce doesn’t just have her ‘I Was Here’ campaign video to work on. The busy Bey is also hard at work directing and starring in a documentary about her life. All hail the Queen!
