Over the weekend, Paul McCartney teamed up with Dave Grohl, Elvis Costello, Dave Matthews, the New Orleans’ Preservation Hall Jazz Band and more to perform one awesome lockdown rendition of 'When the Saints Go Marching In.'

The all-star cast of musicians came together for the Round Midnight Preserves livestream benefit to raise funds for the Preservation Hall Foundation.

During the roughly three-hour live-streamed event, Grohl also joined the Preservation Hall Jazz Band on a performance of their staple tune 'Come With Me (To New Orleans)', while Costello gave a solo rendition of 'The River In Reverse.'

But the highlight of the night was by far the group's cover of the Christian hymn, with McCartney taking a rare turn on the trumpet.

The Preservation Hall Foundation Legacy Relief Fund was established to raise money to support musicians in need amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
