Heart's Nancy And Ann Wilson Reunite At Love Rocks NYC Charity Concert

The faces of Heart are officially back together after nearly three years apart.
Heart front woman Ann Wilson and guitarist Nancy Wilson's set was a highlight in an evening of all-star performances at New York City's Beacon Theatre.
The Love Rocks NYC benefit for the God's Love We Deliver nonprofit also featured performances by Robert Plant, Billy Gibbons, Sheryl Crow (who was wearing a Heart t-shirt), Mavis Staples, Buddy Guy, Hozier and more, with appearances by comic greats like Bill Murray, Martin Short and Chevy Chase and others.
"Thank you for being here for this wonderful night of humanity and kindness and goodness," said Nancy before she and her sister played Heart's "These Dreams" and "Crazy on You."
As tradition goes, the night ended with a few all-star jams. The Wilsons joined Grace Potter, Lukas Nelson, Taj Mahal and Plant for a rendition of Big Joe Turner's "Shake, Rattle and Roll" and remained on stage for the show closer, Traffic's "Feelin' Alright."
While the family dispute that caused the Wilson's split was certainly ugly, neither Rock and Roll Hall of Famer ever indicated that they believed Heart's hiatus would be permanent, despite their hurt feelings.
Late last summer, both Nancy and Ann indicated publicly that they had reconnected and were moving towards discussing the future of Heart.
