Those lucky enough to be in attendance at Anderson East‘s Valentine’s Day performance at the Pearl Street Nightclub in Northampton, Mass. were awarded a very special gift – a surprise appearance by his girlfriend, Miranda Lambert.
She and former The Voice contestant Gwen Sebastian hopped on stage to supply harmonies and backing vocals for a soulful cover of Mariah Carey’s pop hit, “Always Be My Baby”. Although most are used to seeing Lambert take the spotlight, she didn’t seem to mind stepping aside and letting East blow away the crowd with his raspy, powerful vocals.
The country superstar’s unannounced arrival caused the crowd to let out a wave of applause and cheers before they began the uptempo track, which East has been regularly performing on the road in recent weeks.
The show-stopping duet marks one of the first times the couple have performed together since they quietly began dating in December 2015. Both Lambert and East are also featured on Dave Cobb‘s upcoming concept album, Southern Family. Hopefully, this surprise performance won’t be the last time these two talents join forces on stage.
