"Is this what happens at the U.N. every Friday night?" Anderson Cooper jokingly asked the crowd seated in the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations on Friday (August 10). "Because, I've gotta tell you ... I wanna be here every Friday night if this goes on."

The news anchor was referring to members of the organization and their invited guests who were gathered for a special event leading up to World Humanitarian Day, quickly approaching on Saturday. Cooper, himself a humanitarian in many respects, was on hand to host a series of interviews with local and international humanitarians that would eventually lead into a performance from Beyoncé.

The 30-year-old star had appeared at the United Nations earlier in the day, where she rehearsed her performance of "I Was Here" and met with members of the United Nations. Now, at 8 p.m. ET on Friday night, Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson made his way to the stage welcoming everyone to the General Assembly Hall and giving an early introduction of Beyoncé.

"Tonight brings more than her stunning talents; she brings inspiration to help another person, to help another human being," he told the crowd, going on to describe "I Was Here" as a "profound and moving song." When he slipped on the title for a second, calling the song "I Was There," it became evident that there were some Bey stans in the audience. They quickly corrected him and joined him in laughing it off, while he added, "in fact 'here' and 'there' is the same thing — that's solidarity."

ThinkBreatheLive (TBL) has again teamed up with Beyoncé, this time on her epic four-night Memorial Day weekend comeback concerts, Back to Business, which were staged at Atlantic City's new Revel Hotel. Each show consisted of a two-hour, 23-song odyssey, the majority of which featured a massive TBL-generated interactive graphic display. The stage was an elaborate colossus that included myriad LED screens, including three 100-foot-plus monitors (one back LED, a mid LED that can hide or reveal the band members, and an LED floor), and several smaller screens on six towers. A blizzard of interactive visuals seesawed across the monitors throughout the show, ranging from a Tron-esque infinity treadmill floor to accompany End of Time to a slew of strobe lights and silhouettes complementing a slow-motion version of Baby Boy to interactive lasers moving to every step of the choreography in Schoolin' Life. As with last year's Billboard project, TBL worked directly with Beyoncé, director Ed Burke, and choreographer Frank D Gatson Jr throughout the creative process. "In our first meeting, we asked who our point person would be, and they said, 'Beyoncé,'" stated TBL creative director Andy Jennison. "And that was true – she was a fixture in our office. One of the things I love about working with Beyoncé is that she rolls up her sleeves and gets right into it. She doesn't just come in to approve things, she becomes part of the creative process." During a series of pre-production meetings, Beyoncé's team presented visual references in order to give Jennison and his team an idea of the flavours Beyoncé was looking for. Jennison quickly put together a treatment which maximized the usage of the various screens that Beyoncé would employ during her show. The team of 2D and 3D artists immediately began working on executing visuals that accented notes, choreography, and Beyoncé's unique vision of graphic, modern and iconic imagery.
Beyoncé And Koma

Beyonce Knowles may have worn dresses by David Koma before, but no piece he has created for her could have been more important than the one she wore for her comeback performance. After giving birth to baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter five months ago, Knowles has been at home with her daughter and husband Jay-Z, but her Atlantic City Memorial Day weekend concert required something a little more spectacular than her recent dressed-down chic. Koma designed a panelled bodysuit for the star, featuring lace detailing. "I absolutely love to work with Beyonce and her team and I'm very happy that she is back," London-based designer Koma told us. "She looks more beautiful than ever and it's always a pleasure to work with her!" The new mother performed a range of songs from her back catalogue - from new hits like Love On Top, to old favourites like Crazy In Love - as well as tributes to other legendary divas: performing Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You and Lauryn Hill's Ex-Factor.
Fashion designer Tina Knowles shared the applause this past weekend as the costumes she designed for her daughter, Beyonce, received high praise from press, fashion critics and fans who came to see the iconic entertainer perform at Revel Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey, over the Memorial Day weekend. The four sold-out shows at the beach front resort's premiere weekend were highly anticipated as it had been a year since the iconic entertainer performed and her first since giving birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. Tina Knowles, supported by Tim White and Scott Nylund of her House of Dereon fashion label, designed two original costumes for House of Dereon Couture and supervised all of the wardrobe worn by Beyonce as she performed her non-stop, two hour set. The outfits, designed with luxury fabrics which included custom designed metallic leathers and velvet applique, incorporated hundreds of hours in handwork, custom finishing and intricate beading which included Swarovski Crystals. In addition, Ms. Knowles also designed some of the costumes for Beyonce's dancers. "Performing these concerts were so personal to me," said Columbia Records/Sony Music artist, Beyonce. "Music is an expression of who I am and my performances needed to reflect my fashion aesthetic as well as the production elements incorporated into the staging for the shows." She continued, "My mother and I are so close and connected on so many levels, both personally and professionally. Having her design and supervise the wardrobe direction assures me that I will be able to express my love of music and fashion as well as my creative vision for the overall production." House of Dereon Creative Director Tina Knowles said, "This is the fun part of the job! To be able to design costumes for stage is a complete thrill on every level. Through fashion, we are able to add an exciting visual component to the live performance which is what going to a concert is all about!"
New mom Beyonce, who gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy in January, knew there was no time to waste in slimming down as the May dates for her four-concert weekend in Atlantic City, NJ approached. Especially when the star would be squeezing her bod into custom-made Ralph & Russo designs, including a midriff-baring, fringed two-piece adorned with Swarovski crystals. "Y'all have no idea how hard I worked!" the 30-year-old exclaimed to her fans during her concert at Revel Beach's Ovation Hall Saturday night. "I had to lose 60 pounds. They had me on that treadmill. I ate lettuce!" And now that the superstar is halfway through her much-anticipated, post-baby concert return, she's celebrating. "Now tonight I'm gonna get chocolate wasted!" Jay-Z's wife told her fans. Saturday's show proved to be quite the star-studded event: Michella Obama and her daughters Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, were in attendance. "They sat up in a private balcony with Gayle King. Michelle was jamming out to 'Crazy in Love,'" a concertgoer tells Us Weekly. "When Beyonce told the crowd to get up and jump, stood and started dancing and jumping. They were shouting when Beyonce asked, 'Do girls run the world?'" "Together, all three of them did the 'Single Ladies' dance moves," the concertgoer adds.

It’s the sixth borough. This will be a two-day festival with 30 artists playing across three stages. What is your presence going to be like that weekend?
I’ll headline the first night; I’ll probably get one of those silly headsets with the thing, just to look important. I don’t really need it, but I’ll just do that. Overall, have a good time. You’ll see me with probably a beer in my hand, just enjoying the festivities and the music like everyone else. I’ma try and keep it as normal and simple as possible.

What is Beyoncé doing on September 1st and 2nd? Have you checked her calendar?
I tried to put it far enough away that she’d have a little gap in her schedule, so hopefully that works.
