- On a gorgeous Mother’s Day Eve moment, Jennifer Lopez took her mother, Guadalupe Rodríguez, on stage with her at Global Citizen’s Vax Live: The Concert To Reunite The World.
- J.Lo opened the star-studded show with a rendition of Neil Diamond’s 1969 classic “Sweet Caroline”.
- During the show, Lopez explained that her mother used to sing the song to her like a lullaby – but she changed the chorus from “sweet Caroline” to “sweet Jennifer”. Aww!
Jennifer Lopez kicked off Global Citizen’s Vax Live: The Concert To Reunite The World, which aired on Saturday night, and, as you might expect, she crushed it.
The 51-year-old singer and actress opened the concert with an incredible rendition of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” – the emphasis on the “sweet”. J.Lo not only graced our ears with a gorgeous version of the classic song, she invited her mother, Guadalupe Rodríguez, to sing along with her.
While on stage together, Lopez revealed the very sweet and very personal connection she and her mother have with the song.
“Mom, is it true that you used to sing that song to me when I was a baby?” the singer asked her mom.
“When I rocked you,” she replied. “I would sing, ‘Sweet Jennifer.'”
“Let’s sing it like a lullaby, and help her,” Lopez suggested. “Sing it to me like you sang it to me.”
And then that’s exactly what they did. The timing was pure magic and all the inspiration you need to call your own mom on Mother’s Day.
