Katy Perry has released a cozy acoustic cover of The Beatles’ classic hit “All You Need Is Love”. It was recorded for a new holiday advertisement for Gap. In an Instagram post, Perry revealed that this was a full-circle moment for her because she used to work in a Gap store in Santa Barbara, California.
“From folding sweatshirts at the Santa Barbara Gap to 20 years later,” she wrote, “starring in a @markromanek-directed holiday campaign dreams do come true!”
As part of their campaign, part of the proceeds from the song will be donated to Baby2Baby, which is a nonprofit that Perry has long supported.
“One of my first jobs when I was 16 was folding the fleece aisle at Gap in Santa Barbara,” Perry told PEOPLE. “They would play this iconic playlist of musicians. My dream then was to make that Gap playlist — to make that Gap playlist was so cool, all the cool kids were on it. Little did I know that 20 years later, I would be starring in one of those iconic Gap commercials.”
“It’s just such rite of passage. And I got to cover a Beatles song,” she continued. “It was a little bit of a bucket list moment.”
Earlier this month, Perry announced a Las Vegas residency at the new Resorts World Casino along with other artists like Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan.
