An all-star benefit show at London's Royal Albert Hall for the citizens of the Caribbean island of Montserrat, playground to the stars and home to the AIR Studios.

Phil Collins performs "Take Me Home": Elton John performs "Your Song" and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me"; all the artists join Paul McCartney on stage for a finale of "Kansas City"; and more.
