Beyonce was a performer at the Answer The Call concert at Madison Square Garden on September 11, 2009, which also benefitted New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund.

“I cannot think about anything more appropriate to do to help these families,” said the entertainer. “Almost ten years later, it is still so painful for all Americans, especially those who lost loved ones.”
