J.Lo and Blige. duet on a cover of the classic hit from The Beatles at the Saturday event taking place in London's Twickenham Stadium.
During her set at the "Chime for Change Presents: The Sound of Change Live" charity concert Saturday, June 1 at London's Twickenham Stadium, Jennifer Lopez brought out fellow diva Mary J. Blige for a rocking cover of The Beatles' classic "Come Together". The cover was a fitting song for the musical extravaganza, where some of the world's top superstars joined forces to support the charity event.
J.Lo was appropriately flamboyantly dressed for the occasion, wearing a costume cut in the same form as her usual "Live It Up" black bodysuit with thigh-high boots, only this time the fur bolero was exchanged for flowing cape. "Do you believe that one person can make a change?" Lopez yelled, as she got the crowd going, adding, "If we all come together we can do amazing things" before kicking off the duet, then calling out Blige for the second verse.
Outfitted in a body-hugging black and beige pantsuit, Blige walked in, meeting Lopez on center stage where they joined together for the hook. Lopez and Blige then worked the stage, moving towards the jam-packed stadium crowd via a horse-shoe shaped ramp that extended from the main stage, before finally ending their duet front and center.
Other highlights of the show came by way of performances from headliner Beyonce Knowles, Jessie J, Florence and the Machine, John Legend, and Rita Ora. Altogether, they helped raise funds for the international campaign founded by Gucci aiming to bring awareness for both young and adult women's empowerment.
