Here’s who sang what in the #StrongerTogether all-star song (and listen again)

Sunday’s #StrongerTogethere multi-platform special was wonderfully Canadian. Here’s hoping that it raised a ton of money for Canada’s food banks.

The program wrapped up with an all-star version of the late Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me.”

Here’s who sang what.

ArtistsCAN – Lean On Me 🍁 lyrics and whom is singing

Some-times in our lives We all have pain We all have sorrow – Justin Bieber

But, if we are wise We know that there’s al-ways tomorrow Michael Buble

Lean on me When you’re not strong And I’ll be your friend I’ll help you carry on Bryan Adams / Buble BGVS / Justin Bieber ad libs

For it won’t be long ‘Til I’m gonna need Somebody to lean on Fefe Dobson / Justin Bieber ad libs + harmony

Please swallow your pride If I have things You need to borrow Avril Lavigne / Tyler Shaw (bv’s)

For no one can fill those of your needs That you won’t let show Sarah McLachlan / Tyler shaw (bv’s)

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand Tyler Shaw

We all need somebody to lean on The Tenors / Command Sisters
