Paul's performance on "One World: Together at Home"


Here's Paul's rendition of "Lady Madonna" from the "One World: Together at Home" TV special last night.

Paul gave a passionate intro, thanking public health workers for their heroic services during the current COVID-19 pandemic, and mentioned his wife, Mary, who was a midwife during World War II and after.

His performance is a bit rough. As anyone who's seen him live in recent years knows, his voice takes a bit of time these days to warm up. He's not warmed up here and the arrangement of the song seems completely off the cuff. So, a disappointment and a lost opportunity, in my opinion. He might've done something really great given a bit of forethought and preparation. "Lady Madonna" was a great, and unexpected choice, though. And it was good to see him taking part.
