On Wednesday night, a handful of notable musicians and entertainers from the great state of New Jersey put their talents on full display in hopes of raising money for the state’s Pandemic Relief Fund. The “Jersey 4 Jersey” one-night virtual benefit featured at-home performances from either former or current residents of the “Garden State,” including Bruce Springsteen & Patti Scialfa, Jon Bon Jovi, Chalie Puth, Tony Bennett, Halsey, and SZA, in addition to Danny DeVito, Jon Stewart, Chelsea Handler, Kelly Ripa, Saquon Barkley, and Chris Rock.
The performances were streamed on Apple Music and AppleTV, along with the E Street Radio channel on SiriusXM–which is currently free.
Springsteen and his wife Patti Scialfa delivered a duet performance of “Land of Hope and Dreams”, followed by their take on Tom Waits‘ “Jersey Girl”. Additionally, Jon Bon Jovi delivered a rendition of “Livin’ On A Prayer” from his home performance space, SZA shared a soothing take on “20 Something” with help from guitarist Carter Lang, and Halsey performed an acoustic version of one of her newer songs, “Finally // Beautiful Stranger”.
