During her "One World: Together At Home" performance recently, multitalented artist Jennifer Lopez honored Barbra Streisand in more ways than one.
On April 18, Lopez, 50, tackled one of Streisand's iconic songs, "People," from the 1964 musical "Funny Girl." She's also sporting a sweatshirt printed with the Broadway diva's face.
Seated in her backyard in the midst of twinkling lights, Lopez sang, "People, people who need people/ Are the luckiest people in the world..."
