Yesterday, the “Queen of Percussion”, funk and soul legend Sheila E. joined forces with multi-instrumentalist and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert music director, Jon Batiste, and his band Stay Human to perform an unforgettable rendition of the classic track “Come Together” by The Beatles. This hi-energy captive performance by the three enamored The Late Show’s audience and had them singing along throughout the whole performance.
