Last night, all five living former U.S. Presidents attended One American Appeal, a charity concert aimed at raising money for hurricane relief. Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter were all in attendance at Reed Arena at Texas A&M University in College Station.
The roster of performers was impressive (if you're into country music) including Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keen, Sam Moore and Yolanda Adams. But of course that lineup isn't complete without America's biggest country music star: Lady Gaga. In case you hadn't heard, Gaga released a stripped-back country album named after her dead aunt last year.
The Five Foot Two star made a surprise, unbilled appearance, singing a medley of her more soulful, inspiring hits: "Million Reasons," (and honestly, doesn't it seem like she's performed that song more live in a year than she's performed "Bad Romance" or "Poker Face" in the entirety of her career?) "You and I" and a particularly stirring rendition of "The Edge of Glory." Watch Gaga sing her heart out--with frequent, annoying asides to the audience--as Bill Clinton fights the urge to request "G.U.Y."
One American Appeal has also teamed up with Gaga's Born This Way Foundation to help hurricane victims dealing with trauma.
