On Saturday evening was the 2021 Go Gala Campaign which raised money in support of COVID-19 relief efforts around the world, racial justice for American youth, and education for at-risk children in Africa, Latin America, and girls in Afghanistan.
Just like last year, this year’s event was once again held virtually and Mary and Ewan sang another beautiful song. This time around, they sang Townes Van Zandt song “If I Needed You”. Originally written by Van Zandt and recorded in 1972, the song became a country radio hit in 1981 when it was covered as a duet by Emmylou Harris and Don Williams.
You can watch their performance below. Mary’s singing voice as we all know is absolutely lovely, so this was quite the treat. If you missed last year’s performance, you can see it here.
