During the 2013 GLAAD Awards, the frontman of the Scissor Sisters serenaded Anderson Cooper who was being honored by the organization. Shears performed a stirring cover of “A Real Hero” originally by College & Electric Youth. You may have heard the song in Ryan Gosling’s 2011 noir film, Drive.

He even added a special verse dedicated to Coop. Check out the performance below:
