NEW YORK (AP) Superstar singer Beyonce has serenaded a different New York City venue: The United Nations.
Beyonce sang in front of hundreds, including Julia Stiles, R&B singer The-Dream and songwriter Diane Warren, who wrote the song.
Warren said in an interview that she initially called Beyonce's husband, Jay-Z, and played the song for him over the phone. He quickly called Beyonce, and days later she recorded it. It appears on her album “4,'' released last year.
Anderson Cooper hosted, saying with a laugh: “Is this what happens at the UN every Friday night?''
