beyonce (on cnn)*Timing is everything as they say.

And with Beyonce having shade thrown at her by Harry Belafonte for not being socially responsible, it appears her the time is now to respond.

The singer appeared on CNN’s “Anderson 360″ Wednesday night. She was there to discuss her appearance at the United Nations on World Humanitarian Day to record her version of “I Am Here.”

She discussed promoting positivity in honor of World Humanitarian Day.  She also detailed how “I Am Here,” written by Diane Warren integrates into the theme.

“It says, ‘I want to leave my footprints in the sands of time’ and it basically is all of our dreams, I think. And that’s leaving our mark on the world. I feel like we all want to know that our life meant something.”
