Heart sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson reunited for their first performance together in three years when they appeared at the Love Rocks NYC event at New York’s Beacon Theatre on March 7.

The third annual all-star benefit show to raise funds for God's Love We Deliver – a home delivery services that provides customized meals for more than 1.8 million New Yorkers living with illness – saw the Wilson sisters take the stage to deliver their 1986 US No. 1 hit, “These Dreams”, and their 1976 classic, “Crazy On You.”

"Thank you for being here for this wonderful night of humanity and kindness and goodness", said Nancy as they arrived at center stage for their two-song set backed by the house band led by bassist Will Lee, reports WJRZ-FM New Jersey, with no references to their live return or the upcoming North American summer reunion tour, which begins in July.

The Wilson sisters returned later in the evening to join Robert Plant and full stage of guests for “a rousing take on Big Joe Turner's early rock and roll classic, ‘Shake, Rattle And Roll,’ with each sister singing lead on a verse”, while also appearing as part of the finale performance of Traffic's legendary 1968 single, "Feelin' Alright."

The Love Rocks NYC concert – which featured a star-studded lineup of artists, including Sheryl Crow, ZZ Top's Billy F. Gibbons, Jimmie Vaughan and more – raised $2.3 million dollars for the food delivery service God's Love We Deliver.

Heart went on an extended hiatus following an August 2016 incident that saw Ann’s husband, Dean Wetter, involved in altercation with Nancy’s children backstage during a hometown show in Seattle, WA; Wetter eventually plead guilty to two counts of fourth-degree assault and was put on two years of probation with no contact with his nephews.
