While Katy Perry took the stage at the Democratic National Convention last night just before presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s closing speech, Lady Gaga performed for Democratic delegates at a more intimate, invite-only event at Camden Rising in New Jersey.
Performing a number of her own singles like “Bad Romance,” Gaga also sang covers from The Beatles, Neil Young, and more. Shown above, Gaga covers The Beatles’ “Come Together.” She also performed Neil Young’s “Old Man,” Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land,” Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile,” and Phil Ochs’s “The War Is Over,” as reported by GagaDaily.
