THIS is the Beyonce performance to end all Beyonce performances (IMHO):
About World Humanitarian Day
Every year on August 19th, World Humanitarian Day recognizes those who face danger and adversity to help others. August 19th is the anniversary of the 2003 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq, which killed 22 people.
We honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and we pay tribute to those who continue to help people around the world, regardless of who they are and where they are.
Every day we see and hear images and stories of pain and suffering in our own neighborhoods and in countries far away. But we also find acts of kindness, great and small. World Humanitarian Day is a global celebration of people helping people.

2. K&R I'd heard about this but had never seen it. Very powerful
It's been interesting to see the comments from certain people here about how "untalented" she is or how she's only a "middling" talent.
These statements are of course immediately preceded by people who are deemed to be more "worthy" and "deserving" singers, 99% of whom nobody has ever heard of or who's day in the sun has been so long gone even they can't remember them. But yeah, "obscure rock group from 1972" is of course more talented/relevant/deserving than Beyonce.
I'm getting to the point where I think the stuff I listened to as a kid is better than anything that's out right now too. But that doesn't mean I refuse to recognize this beautiful, talented woman's rightful place at the top of the music industry right now.
