Lady Gaga stands, or sits, strong with five former U.S. Presidents.
The “Million Reasons” singer made a surprise appearance at a benefit concert for hurricane relief in Texas on Saturday. Gaga, 31, shared a photo alongside all five living former Presidents of the United States.
“Nothing more beautiful than everyone putting their differences aside to help humanity in the face of catastrophe,” Gaga tweeted a photo with Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter.
The event, called “Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal,” featured performances from Alabama, “Soul Man” Sam Moore, Yolanda Adams and more!
Incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump addressed the audience, and the former presidents, in a taped message played at the concert. “I want to express our deep gratitude for your tremendous assistance,” Trump said. “This wonderful effort reminds us that we truly are one nation under God, all unified by our values and our devotion to one another.”
“It’s important that those affected by these devastating storms know that even if the path to recovery feels like a road that goes on forever,” H.W. Bush said. ‘We’re with them for the long haul.”
Obama said of H.W. Bush: “He sets an example for all of us, as does first lady Barbara Bush.”
The “One Heart” effort had raised $31 million from more than 80,000 donors, as of Saturday night, according to organizers.
