Paul McCartney Makes a Statement:
Before coming up with the performance, Beatles’ “Lady Madonna” alongside footage of healthcare workers, he made a plea: “Let’s tell our leaders we need to strengthen the health care system around the world so that a crisis like this never happens again.”
Beyonce Gets Real:
Queen Bey brought some robust truthfulness ahead:
“Black Americans disproportionately belong to these essential parts of the workforce that do not have the luxury of working from home. African American communities at large have been severely affected in this crisis. Those with pre-existing conditions are at an even higher risk. This virus is killing black people at an alarmingly high rate here in America.”
Lizzo Belts a Classic:
For One World: Together at Home, Lizzo gave a primary performance, eschewing production values and high concept. She just stole the show without any bustle. Belting out Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come”, she demonstrated why exactly are so lucky to have her among us.
Shawn and Camila Get Cozy:
When Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello got ready, at a piano to perform “What a Wonderful World”, their gracefully blended vocals turned what could have seemed saccharine into sublime.
Stones Give Fans What They Need:
The Rolling Stones turned came up with the Let It Bleed classic “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”. Mick Jagger’s vocals were strong as ever. Keith Richards overflowed with his unending charm, Ronnie Wood was all lit up with a smile, and Charlie Watts air-drummed along to the ode. As always, the Stones brought a wave of great enthusiasm to their performance.
J.Lo – The Funny Girl:
Seated at a backyard tree that was with glowing white lights, Jennifer Lopez hooked her pipes with a take on the Funny Girl classic “People”. J.Lo’s ability to sing the song associated with Barbra Streisand was awe-inspiring.
Taylor Breaks Hearts:
She put out “Soon You’ll Get Better”, a song she wrote about her mother’s battle with cancer. She effectively ripped our hearts out and made us realise the power of music while dealing with pain.
Taylor Swift performed an emotional song about her mother's battle with cancer during the "One World: Together at Home" live broadcast. It was the first time Swift performed the song live. https://t.co/ddUVlrMfOX
