Watch Stevie Wonder cover Bill Withers’ song ‘Lean on Me’ from self-isolation

Stevie Wonder joined forces a line-up alongside some of the world’s most recognised performers as part of the broadcast of ‘One World: Together at Home’.

The show, which lasted eight hours and included over 100 different artists, was dedicated to first responders and medical staff who are committed to the current coronavirus pandemic.

Organised by Lady Gaga, who said that the event was “a love letter to the world”, the musical campaign was established in a bid to raise money for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO. Discussing the event, Gaga said the participating musicians wanted “to give back a little bit of the kindness that you’ve given us”.

Alongside Gaga, who also performed on the night, the ‘One World: Together at Home’ broadcast included shows from the likes of Paul McCartney, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Lizzo and, of course, Stevie Wonder.

Wonder, who underwent a kidney transplant last year, tuned in to deliver a cover version of ‘Lean on Me’, an iconic hit originally recorded by late Bill Withers, a close friend of Wonders.
