Cyndi Lauper was one of the many artists who gathered in Washington DC last week to honor Willie Nelson, when he was presented with the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize.

With a tip of the hat to George and Ira Gershwin, who the Prize is named after, Willie an Cyndi sang, “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off.” When Willie introduced Cyndi and called her out to the stage, Willie announced that they had recorded the song for a new album coming out early next year to honor the Gershwin brothers, “Summertime.”
