Jennifer Lopez got creative on Saturday night as she decorated her garden with fairy lights and built a makeshift stage so that she could perform to a global audience as part of the One World: Together at Home show. The Jenny from the Block hitmaker shared footage on Instagram of herself standing in front of the gorgeous set up, with lights twinkling in the background as she sang an emotional rendition of Barbra Streisand's People. The Hustlers star captioned the post: "Here’s one thing that I realised during this whole time, and it's how much we all need each other. With a few old Christmas lights from the garage and some candles left over from our Super Bowl party here at the house, I tried to put together with all the love in the world a thank you to everyone out there fighting, working, sacrificing and doing their part."

And a humble thank you to my idol @barbrastreisand for always inspiring me in the best and toughest times… and thank you to @glblctzn for having me! #TogetherAtHome @who." The performance went down a treat with J-Lo's fans, including Barbra herself, who commented: "That was really pretty.. B." Jennifer responded, writing: "Thank you!! You are my idol."
