Beyonce is asking her fans to join her to support World Humanitarian Day on August 19.

The Grammy Award-winning singer is joining the United Nations and humanitarian aid organizations for the campaign and appears in a black and white video, which can be seen below, urging her fans to "make your mark."

The video also features her song "I Was Here" and the music video is set to be filmed in the UN General Assembly Hall in New York City in front of a live audience.

Beyonce and the songwriter, Diane Warren, are donating the video to the campaign, according to a statement from the UN, which describes World Humanitarian Day as "a global day to celebrate humanity and the spirit of people helping people."

The UN General Assembly first designated August 19 as World Humanitarian Day in 2008.

The campaign's website launched on August 2 and provides users with an opportunity to share their acts of good.

"We all see the headlines and we think what can I really do to help," Beyonce said in a statement. "World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity for all of us to work together to make a difference. This is our time to leave our mark on the world and show that we were here and we care."

It was reported earlier this week that the singer will direct, produce and star an autobiographical documentary which will include concert footage and interviews.

Beyonce's documentary is expected to include behind-the-scenes concert footage, confessional interview and a glimpse at her life with her new baby.

Beyonce and Jay-Z, who married in 2008, welcomed their daughter Blue Ivy Carter on January 7 in a New York hospital. The rapper then released a song about the baby, called "Glory."
