The group performed the song, which was written by Jackson Browne and popularized by Nico, for Jack and Rachel Antonoff's annual Talent Show benefit for their LGBTQ+ equality non-profit The Ally Coalition. The benefit was back for its first in-person edition since 2019 last night (December 19) in New York City after being held virtually due to the pandemic.
The musicians gathered around a single mic to harmonize —"It's cuter this way," Bridgers said— and all of their unique voices blended together seamlessly. Check out an attendee-recorded video of the performance below.
Jack and Rachel Antonoff founded the Ally Coalition (TAC) back in 2013. "With TAC’s unique connection to the entertainment industry, the artists they partner with use their platforms to raise awareness of the systemic inequalities facing the LGBTQ population and activate prominent members of the creative community and their fan bases to engage with these issues in meaningful and impactful ways," according to their website.
Last night's event was the eighth edition of the annual Talent Show. As of last year's show, the non-profit had raised over $350,000 for LGBTQ+ youth.
