The Barden Bellas are back together for the first time in three years, and this time for a good cause.
“Pitch Perfect” stars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow and others reunited virtually to sing a cover of Beyoncé’s “Love on Top” in hopes of raising money for UNICEF to help COVID-19 relief efforts, according to USA Today.
Snow wrote about the performance on Instagram: “We are here, again, making music with our mouths for two very important reasons: Beyoncé and a great cause.
The video description read, “There’s nothing perfect about the world we’re living in Families around the globe are suffering from the impact of the #COVID19 pandemic, especially those in Lebanon who are facing crisis after crisis. But we can all pitch in and help.”
Before the performance began John Michael Higgins and Elizabeth Banks reprised their roles as the “Pitch Perfect” announcers.
“I’m afraid I have some bad news. The Barden Bellas have gotten back together again,” Higgins announced, according to Billboard. “It seems like not even a quarantine can prevent them from harassing us with another musical performance.”
Banks said all proceeds will go toward UNICEF’s efforts to help people during the coronavirus pandemic and help feed families in Lebanon, per ABC News.
The cover version of the song is currently available for download on Amazon and iTunes with proceeds going toward UNICEF. It is also available to stream on Spotify.
