Last night, thousands came out to witness some of music’s best performers unite to end world poverty at the 2015 Global Citizen Festival.

Taking place at Central Park, the massive crowd enjoyed performances from ColdplayAriana Grande, Pearl JamEd Sheeran, and Beyonce. As expected, the Queen of the BeyHive amazed the crowd during her hour-long set, performing some of her biggest hits and bringing out Sheeran as a guest.

Sheeran and Bey gave the crowd something special when they performed a new rendition of “Drunk in Love” together.

Before Beyonce’s stage time was done, she called on one more queen to join her: Michelle Obama. When Michelle stepped on stage, she had nothing but sweet things to say about the singer:

I am honored to follow a woman whom I admire and adore, someone who believes as passionately as I do, the boundless promise of girls worldwide.

How sweet is that!

Though Bey’s set was done, her night wasn’t officially over. The Grammy-winning singer joined legendary rock band Pearl Jam towards the end of their set, where they sung a beautiful cover of Bob Marley‘s “Redemption Song.”

Another sweet moment was when Ariana Grande helped Coldplay cover her “Just A Little Bit Of Your Heart.”

Check out some performance clips below.
