About ten years ago Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli did a duet on "The Prayer," which though not released as a single was a beautiful poignant performance.
During the broadcast, John Legend and Lady Gaga joined in to create a unique four part performance. Truly compelling.
The event closed with a very moving and very appropriate song Taylor Swift. She emerged as a truitjh teller appearing alone at the piano to sing a song she wrote about facing her mother's recurring cancer.
