Jennifer Lopez put her vocals at the forefront when the pop icon slowed things down with a stunning version of Barbra Streisand's signature smash, "People," as part of Global Citizen's historic "One World: Together at Home" primetime benefit concert, which aired on Saturday (April 18).
"Thank you, Global Citizen, for having me be part of such a beautiful thing. There's one thing that I've realized more than anything during this whole time and it's how much we all need each other," Lopez told viewers during the telecast. Surrounded by lights in her backyard, Lopez, 50, rocked Barb on her shirt as she sat besides a number of candles for the two-minute cover of the 1964 ballad, which saw the superstar show off some impressive vocals.
In addition to showing her fans a bit of her family bonding amid the quarantine, Lopez has also taken time to thank the hospital workers in New York City. Earlier this week, the titan and Robert De Niro sent messages of hope to the staff at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. "Your heroic efforts have not gone unnoticed. We love you. We thank you," she told the facility's 47,000 employees during the morning briefings. "I'm a New Yorker just like you. The only difference is you are all heroes," De Niro added.
In addition to Lopez, some of the other friendly faces that participated in the charity concert included event curator Lady Gaga, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, The Beckhams, Oprah Winfrey and Samuel L. Jackson and Taylor Swift. Prior to the "One World: Together at Home" broadcast, over $50 million has been raised to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
