Lady Gaga and Elton John Leave Me "Speechless"

Last night, Carnegie Hall played host to Sting's annual Rainforest Fund benefit concert. In its 21st year, the event included, among others, Bruce Springsteen, Mary J. Blige, Debbie Harry, Elton John and Lady Gaga. 

Gaga and Sir John teamed up to reprise their jaw-dropping Grammy performance - a mash-up of Gaga's "Speechless" and John's "Your Song" that I had immediately downloaded and listened to endlessly. Though tickets to the event cost upwards of $50,000, the invention of camera phones has once again saved the day! Check out the video below, which is (incredibly) even better than the original. Though these two are some of music's most outrageously theatrical, it great to hear a pure, simple and beautiful duet without any gimmicks. Fingers crossed for more collaborations!
