Global Citizen's "One World: Together at Home" concert wrapped up on a high note on Saturday night (April 18) with a culminating performance of Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli's "The Prayer." However, for this virtual rendition, the titans were joined by none other than event curator Lady Gaga, John Legend and pianist Lang Lang.
At the end of the two-hour television broadcast, the acts teamed up for a collaboration of Dion and Bocelli's late '90s ballad and it was the biggest star-studded collaboration of the evening. With each of the artists singing from their own home and Lang Lang providing piano backing, the cross-genre duet saw the singers weave in and out of the ballad in English and French. "Let this be our prayer/ Let this be our prayer, just like every child/ Just like every child Need to find a place, guide us with your grace/ Give us faith so we'll be safe," they harmonized. For a night that saw a number of stars sing their own songs and cover some inspirational anthems from others, the rendition of "The Prayer" took the telecast to a new level and made sure to wrapped the evening up on a tender note.
If you caught the "One World: Together at Home" concert, you saw the likes of event curator Lady Gaga, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, The Beckhams, Oprah Winfrey and Samuel L. Jackson and Taylor Swift team up for the charitable event. Prior to the "One World: Together at Home" broadcast, over $50 million has been raised to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
