Day three of the Democratic National Convention rivaled day two when it came to star power.

Mid way through the night, a long line of famous faces took the stage for a singalong version of “What the World Needs Now,” kicked off by Idina Menzel who then passed the single microphone down the stage to the likes of Tony Award winners Audra McDonald, Lena Hall, Brian Stokes Mitchell, as well as actresses Kristin Bell and Debra Messing, among others.

Eventually the mic made its way to none other than Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless, better known as the duo Cagney & Lacey, who sparked an eruption of applause and cheers from the audience.


The pair starred together on the police drama in the eighties and reunited again in 1994 for the CBS-aired reunion movie Cagney & Lacey: The Return.

Sharing the stage with Daly and Gless was a roundup of stars from various parts of the industry, totaling 40.
