Katy Perry may have stolen the musical show at the televised Democratic National Convention on Thursday, in which party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton gave the rousing closing speech. But Lady Gaga performed her own intimate set just a few miles away at Camden Rising, an invite-only concert for Democratic delegates.

During her set, she covered tracks from the Beatles (“Come Together”), Neil Young (“Old Man”), Woody Guthrie (“This Land is Your Land”), and others.

“She’s fighting for all of us,” New Jersey Senator Cory Booker said while introducing her, “from victims of sexual assault to people suffering with mental health. She speaks to the gospel of love that she’s put to a pretty powerful soundtrack.”

In a video on his Snapchat, Booker posed with Lady Gaga and said, “I’m really proud to be in Camden, New Jersey with a Jersey girl, Lady Gaga.”

After the show and Clinton’s speech, Gaga tweeted a photo with her backing band and wrote, “We are so much stronger together. #DNC #StrongerTogether #Vote.”

See some fan-shot footage from the show.
