Watch Brian Wilson and two-thirds of Wilson Phillips sing a Beach Boys classic with Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson brought together three generations of Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson‘s family for the “Kellyoke” segment of her talk show on Thursday.

The segment featured a performance of the 1966 Beach Boys classic “God Only Knows,” that saw Clarkson joined virtually by Brian — the band’s mastermind, who co-wrote the song — and in person by Wilson’s daughters Carnie and Wendy, who make up two-thirds of Wilson Phillips

Carnie’s daughter, Lola Bonfiglio, also was on hand to take part in the performance. According to a post on the program’s Twitter feed, it’s the first time these three generations of Wilsons have ever performed together.

In an emotional touch, the performance soundtracked a video called “Summer 2021 Together Again,” showing people reuniting with their loved ones after being apart due to the pandemic.
