Jennifer Lopez channeled Barbra Streisand during Saturday night’s (April 18) One World: Together at Home benefit concert, tackling one of the Broadway diva’s signature songs: “People” from the 1964 musical Funny Girl.
“People, people who need people/ Are the luckiest people in the world” is a line we can all relate to just about now, as many of us are riding out the stay-at-home orders solo, or at least separated from many loved ones. Lopez performed surrounded by twinkling Christmas lights and she did Barbra proud, nailing the notoriously tricky high notes with aplomb and driving home the song’s emotional message.
Lady Gaga curated the night’s all-star lineup, which also includes Taylor Swift, John Legend, Paul McCartney and more. The World Health Organization and Global Citizen teamed up for their massive worldwide special to support and applaud healthcare workers in the fight against COVID-19.
