James Hetfield, the frontman of Metallica, sang a cover song that was completely unexpected for the heavy metal singer during his brief set at Friday night’s second annual Acoustic-4-A-Cure event in San Francisco. He performed Adele’s 19-track song “Crazy For You” with his daughter Cali by his side, playing the acoustic guitar. Her voice sounds nice!

The father-daughter duo took the stage by storm and made sure to melt the hearts of the entire crowd. Along with that, about four and a half million people also watched the clip on YouTube. Cali’s soulful voice is a delight along with Hetfield’s acoustic guitar.

Not only was this a simple sweet performance from James and his child, but this performance holds something more significant. The Acoustic-4-A-Cure, held at the Masonic in San Francisco, benefits the Pediatric Cancer Program at the University of California at San Francisco’s Benioff Children’s Hospital.

This year’s Acoustic-4-A-Cure, which was co-hosted by Hetfield and Sammy Hagar, featured special performers like as Pat Monahan of Train, Jerry Cantrell, Linda Perry, and Joe Satriani, who are all members of Chickenfoot alongside Hagar.

Perry and Satriani collaborated on a cover of “Communication Breakdown” by Led Zeppelin. She and Hagar also performed a cover of “Somebody to Love” by Jefferson Airplane. Hetfield was joined by Cantrell, of Alice in Chains, for a somber rendition of Blue Oyster Cult’s “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper,” which is attached below.

Metallica has seen success for more than 40 years and has created some of the greatest metal hits ever in the genre. Along with it, they have been the inspiration for a lot of metal bands that have come to the scene. They continue on this journey by making new records every few years, but their timeless classic albums will go down in history as the pioneering moments.
