Hannah Waddingham & Jason Sudeikis Perform Epic “Shallow” Duet for Charity

You better believe it – Ted Lasso alums Hannah Waddingham and Jason Sudeikis teamed up over the weekend to perform the most epic cover of “Shallow”, and it was all for a good cause!

The actors treated guests to the duet at “THUNDERGONG!”, a benefit concert held in Kansas City which was co-founded and hosted by Jason to raise funds for Steps of Faith. The nonprofit, founded by Jason’s friend, Billy Brimblecom, provides prosthetic limbs to amputees who can’t afford them.

The duet started off with Jason proclaiming “there is nobody I would rather sing this song with” whilst standing beside fellow actor Will Forte. He began singing Bradley Cooper’s part and it wasn’t long before Hannah appeared on stage to powerfully cover Lady Gaga’s verses, much to the delight of the audience!

During the event, Jason explained how “five hundred people lose a limb in America every day.” He added that, “we can’t keep up with that as a singular organisation, and as a once-a-year charity event. But if we can help out in any way we can, then I feel obligated and excited to do it. I couldn’t imagine not doing it at this point. It’s something that I really, really enjoy with people I really, really love.”

According to Steps of Faith, the event raised over $800,000 to help provide prosthetic care for amputees.
