John Legend and Sam Smith came together for a stirring duet of "Stand By Me" for One World: Together At Home. It was the perfect song for the occasion, making everyone viewing feel as if we're all on one couch... well, together at home.
Legend's minimalistic setting with his many awards sitting behind them and Smith's cozy decor really served as the perfect backdrop while the two singers's voices soar to magnificent heights. Legend got busy on the piano while Smith's smile stretched as wide as possible as they performed the Ben E. King classic.
