Is there anything bad about Beyoncé? We really don't think so. The powerhouse performer lent her talent to World Humanitarian Day yesterday, performing live at the United Nations.

"Is this what happens at the UN every Friday night?" Anderson Cooper, who hosted the event, asked. "Because, I've gotta tell you... I want to be here every Friday night if this goes on."

Who can blame him?

Beyoncé posted on her website earlier this month: "Leave your footprint on 19 August 2012."

On that day in 2003, 22 humanitarian workers tragically lost their lives in a terrorist attack in Iraq. Now, the day marks World Humanitarian Day, to honor those who were killed in their efforts to help others.

Bey performed "I Was Here," a powerful song off her album, 4.

"Tonight she brings more than her stunning talents; she brings inspiration to help another person, to help another human being," Anderson told the crowd, going on to describe "I Was Here" as a "profound and moving song."

After her performance, Beyoncé encouraged everyone to act in honor of World Humanitarian Day. "I'd like to ask everyone to make sure they're a part of August 19. It's such a beautiful, beautiful day, and I'd like to honor the 22 people who lost their lives. God bless you all. Thank you so much for having me."
