'One World: Together At Home': Lady Gaga opens with beautiful rendition of 'Smile' leaving fans emotional
The novel coronavirus may have brought the whole wide world to a standstill, but a few are leaving no stone unturned to do their bit in extending support and love during the dark times.
One such event is the virtual 'One World: Together At Home', which is organized by WHO and international advocacy organization Global Citizen, curated in collaboration with Lady Gaga, presenting performances by some of the biggest names in the music industry to thank first responders and others who have put their lives on the line in the global pandemic.
The two-hour-long virtual concert co-hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert was kickstarted by none other than Lady Gaga herself, who presented a beautiful rendition of the song 'Smile'.
Before her enthralling performance, she took a moment to tell the audience that she was honored to be a part of the fight against COVID-19. Not only did the singer's performance uplift viewers' spirits, but it also left a lot of them feeling emotional.
One fan wrote, "@ladygaga Your performance tonight on #TogetherAtHome was beautiful. I was not previously a fan of your work. But tonight, you earned a new fan and more importantly, you earned my respect."
"You sang my favorite song in the world 'Smile'. You made me cry! I was fortunate to see you in concert with Tony Bennett, another favorite person. May God bless you and your entire family!" added another.
Meanwhile, a majority of fans thanked her for making the event happen, which is not only entertaining those who are struggling to cope with the health crisis, but also spreading awareness about the coronavirus outbreak.
One viewer wrote, "She's bringing so people together through her love and I have never been so thankful to someone in my life. Lady Gaga, you're changing the world like nobody else is. Thank you for using your platform for GOOD."
