Move over, Bebe Rexha -- Julia Michaels has a hit country collaboration too

Ethan Miller/Getty ImagesShe’s a blonde pop singer who got her start writing songs for other artists, and now her collaboration with a superstar country act is a big hit on the country chart. No, we’re not talking about Bebe Rexha and “Meant to Be” — we’re talking about Julia Michaels.

“Coming Home,” a collaboration between Julia and Keith Urban, is currently a major country hit. Julia co-wrote the song, and sings on it as well, but how did the two connect? “Through Twitter, actually!” Julia tells ABC Radio. “He tweeted me and was like, ‘I’m a big fan of your EP, I would love to work with you.'”

“The first song we ever wrote together was a song called ‘Gemini’ that’s on his record,” Julia says, referring to Keith’s current album Graffiti U. “And then we wrote together a couple more times and then we ended up doing ‘Coming Home’ together.” (AUDIO IS ABC 1-ON-1)

When Julia’s not able to join Keith to perform their top ten hit on the road, she’s recorded a video version of her part of “Coming Home.” You can check it out during Keith’s recent performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

At the Washington, D.C. rally, Lin-Manuel Miranda delivered an a cappella version of “Dear Theodosia,” from his Broadway musical Hamilton, for the parents “who can’t sing lullabies to their kids.”

Miranda was joined in D.C. by Superstore star America Ferrera and singer Alicia Keys, who took the stage together to deliver emotional speeches.

Meanwhile, comic and actress Amy Schumer and Scandal‘s Kerry Washington were among the stars showing up in New York City.

In Los Angeles, singer John Legend — who attended the rally with his wife Chrissy Teigen and their newborn son, Miles — performed a new song, called “Preach.”

Laura Dern, who stars in Big Little Lies, also attended the Los Angeles rally, along with her “HBO family,” as did Overboard‘s Eugenio Derbez and Jane the Virgin‘s Jaime Camil.

Other celebrities attending various rallies included Zooey Deschanel, Ava DuVernay, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Natalie Portman, Selena Gomez, and Sia.

Meanwhile, Susan Sarandon was among roughly 575 people arrested in Washington, D.C. Thursday during a protest of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

“Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting. #WomenDisobey,” The 71-year-old actress wrote on Twitter.
