Beyonce’s ‘I Was Here’ Video Gives Glimpses of Her Life, Career and Wedding Dress
Beyonce has dropped the video for 'I Was Here' from her forthcoming 'Live at Roseland: Elements of 4' DVD, which is slated for release on Nov. 29. The live video for her '4' track opens with Bey on stage, addressing the crowd at New York City's famed Roseland Ballroom. The songstress, who is wearing a deconstructed, super short silver dress, quickly proves that this is not just another live performance video.
There are snippets of Bey performing on the Roseland stage, but for the most part, the video is a career retrospective. The clip traces her earliest days as a performer (mini Bey dancing, riding horses, thanking her family and hometown of Houston in a talent competition speech) through her rise as a member of Destiny's Child (Hi, Kelly Rowland) and as a solo superstar.
Through it all, Bey's mane goes through a variety of styles, lengths and textures, as does her attire, which changes from youthful and skimpy to couture and grown-up. Speaking of clothing, we get a blink-and-you-will-miss it view of her strapless, ruched white wedding gown, which has never before been seen! Yes, she looks gorgeous in the curve-hugging dress.
The sweetest scenes are of Bey visiting sick kids and hugging them while flashing that megawatt smile. These shots shows her genuine kindness and caring nature. There's also a few more ego-stroking shots of her with Larry King, Oprah, Prince, Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand, Tina Turner, Etta James and President Obama. It's just evidence that Bey has conquered the world.
It's good to be Beyonce. As she sings in the lyrics, she want to let people know she was here. This video is certainly proof that Beyonce was here, living out loud. Carve it in an oak tree. There's no disputing that Bey was here.
