Mariah Carey loops in backup singers and Backstreet Boys perform with kids in living room concert

Mariah Carey conferenced in backup singers and Tim McGraw performed from his diving board in iHeart’s all-star remote benefit show this Sunday.

Hosted by Elton John, the iHeart Living Room Concert For America featured videos from a dazzling array of artists who sang from their homes to raise money for charity.

In a particularly sizzling performance Camila Cabello and her boyfriend Shawn Mendes sat intimately close on a chaise lounge to perform her single My Oh My.

Proceeds from the concert are to be donated to the First Responders Children’s Foundation, which helps families of first responders in need amid the mounting crisis.

The funds raised will also go to the hunger relief charity Feeding America, which provides aid to food banks all over the country that serve the underprivileged.

Sunday night’s opening act was Alicia Keys, who wore an understated ensemble of a white tee, dark trousers and glamorous hoops as she performed from her sitting room.

‘This song is like a prayer, and I hope that we remember how resilient we are and how we defy the odds,’ said Alicia while sitting at a purple upright piano.

‘I’d like to dedicate this song to all the first responders and medical professionals that are risking their life to keep us safe. We’re so grateful,’ she added.

The multitalented 39-year-old then played the piano while belting her inspirational ballad Underdog, which is a cut off her upcoming seventh studio album Alicia.

She delivered a stirring rendition of the number, which was released this January as a single from the album slated to come out this May.

‘I can’t think of a better way to kick off this living room concert,’ said Elton before declaring he was ‘quarantined in the only house I’ve ever been in without a piano’ and so could not do a number himself.
