The All-Star "Across the Universe" Tribute (2005)

This tribute to the victims of the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami brought together Bono, Stevie Wonder (and his harmonica), Norah Jones, Brian Wilson, Alicia Keys, Billie Joe Armstrong, Alison Krauss (and her violin), Steven Tyler (and his maracas), Tim McGraw and Scott Weiland, whose vocals indicated, as you'd might expect, that he was a huge fan of the version David Bowie recorded for Young Americans. Velvet Revolver is the band, with Slash playing a 12-string. At the climax, the singers transform John Lennon's Buddhist koan "Nothing's gonna change my world" into "Something's gonna change my world."
