By Billboard

The Ally Coalition show in New York just got served a superstar moment, when Hayley Kiyoko welcomed Taylor Swift to the stage for a special duet.

Kiyoko introduced the pop superstar as a “rising artist that just signed to Universal.” Well, the second part is accurate. The pair then smashed a stripped-back version of Reputation hit “Delicate,” with TayTay accompanying on acoustic guitar.

Also during Wednesday night's concert, Lana Del Rey debuted two new songs with Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff who, with his sister, fashion designer Rachel Antonoff, organizes the event, which raises funds and advocates for homeless and at-risk LGBTQ youth.

The 2018 show took place at Town Hall in New York City with Regina Spektor, Fun. multi-instrumentalist Andrew Dost, Rostam, Jacqueline Novak and others on the bill.
