Jennifer Lopez Performs Barbra Streisand's 'People' for One World: Together at Home Special

Jennifer Lopez pulled off a spectacular performance to support healthcare professionals battling the global coronavirus pandemic.

On Saturday, the “Let’s Get Loud” songstress sang remotely for the One World: Together at Home special, organized by Global Citizen, the World Health Organization, and Lady Gaga to raise awareness through the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund to support local and regional charities providing food, shelter and healthcare to those in need amid the ongoing health crisis.

Lopez, 50, sang Barbra Streisand‘s “People,” while wearing a black Gucci sweater bedazzled with jewels in Streisand’s likeness.

“Thank you Global Citizen for having me be part of such a beautiful thing,” Lopez said before her performance. “You know there’s one thing that I realized more than anything during this whole time and it’s how much we all need each other.”

After her performance, Lopez told viewers, “I miss you.”

Her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, shared a selfie of himself, Lopez and her 12-year-old daughter Emme on Instagram before her performance.

“We are beyond honored to convert our back yard to a makeshift stage so we could be a part of tonight’s “One World: Together at Home” show,” Rodriguez wrote in the caption. “Tune in now and check out all of the incredible performances by these amazing artists … and most of all, stay safe everyone. ❤.”
