Lady Gaga and all five living former presidents—Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama—appeared on the same stage at Texas A&M University on Saturday, October 21, for the Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal concert, which aimed to raise money and awareness for communities hurt by the recent deadly hurricane season. The pop icon made a surprise appearance at the concert as well, giving us one of the greatest backstage photos ever posted:

“It was an honor to be invited by these five living Presidents to perform and speak at this historic event where we put our differences aside, and put humanity first in the face of catastrophe. #OneAmericaAppeal,” Lady Gaga wrote on Instagram.

Six equally influential world leaders! In a regal (or perhaps Hillary-esque?) white pantsuit and standing behind the two Bushes, Gaga looked right at home. After all, given where things currently stand, is it such a leap from Lady Gaga to POTUS Gaga?

According to E! News, Gaga took the stage to a standing ovation, greeting all of the former presidents and getting a wave from Carter before sitting at a Steinway piano to play “Million Reasons,” You And I” and “Edge of Glory.”

Recently, Gaga has been recovering from issues related to her fibromyalgia, but seemed in high spirits at the event and rocked two different outfits in addition to her three hit songs.

“It is such an honor to be here. Thank you so much for coming together in such compassion. I feel very, very honored and humbled,” she reportedly told the crowd. “I thought the most special thing of all is how pain is such an equalizer and in a time of catastrophe we all put our difference aside and we all come together, because we need each other or we can’t survive.” Not to be overlooked: Gaga also pledged a million dollars to the campaign.

Current President Donald Trump made an appearance via a pre-recorded video, in which he praised the efforts of his five predecessors, calling it “tremendous.”
