The time couldn’t be any better for the return of a song as powerful and anthemic as “With a Little Help from My Friends,” the classic Beatles track that was released in 1967, a year ahead of Joe Cocker’s legendary cover version.

As we are all finding ways to manage the Safer-At-Home mandate caused by the coronavirus pandemic, The Tribe — a Los Angeles-based collective of musicians and singers — with a little help from Tribe member Steve Bauman, found a way to create this video of the band performing the song while maintaining appropriate social distancing, combining it with timely scenes of Los Angeles into a beautiful heartfelt video which was premiered on April 25, 2020 during the All Together Now! telethon for the City of Los Angeles, which was produced in association with the Get Together Foundation.

The recording features John Pratt on lead vocals and several members of The Tribe’s extensive musical collective. Tribe Band members include: Steve Bauman (keys), Kevin Wachs (drums), Marc Mann (electric guitar), Michael Stern (acoustic guitar), Chad Watson (bass), Jay Cohen (bass), Al. Keith (percussion), The Pacoima Horns: Chris Elliott (trumpet), Steve Bauman (trumpet), Scotty Mitchell (saxophone) and Chad Watson (trombone); with lead vocals from John Pratt and additional vocals provided by Gary Stockdale, Lauri Reimer, Jaynee Thorne, Alice Howe, Freebo, Rob Morrow & family (Tu Morrow, Debbon Ayer), Adam Daniel, Steven Goddard, John McNeely, Fuzzbee Morse, Jeff Alan Ross, Ginger Blake (The Honeys), Jimi Poulin, Marilyn Wilson-Rutherford (The Honeys), and Daniel Rutherford.

Proceeds went to the Mayor’s COVID-19 Crisis Fund. You can still donate at this link, or by texting the word: TOGETHER to 24365.
