From its diverse, star-studded “Bridging the Gap” video to the “Meet Me in The Gap” campaign starring Cher and Future, Gap has been using music and fashion to unify and inspire people all year long—and its holiday commercial is no different.

The brand tapped actress and singer Janelle Monae to lead a group sing-a-long for a holiday video that is impossible to watch without smiling. Featuring choirs of both adults and kids, the happy group celebrates togetherness while singing an acoustic rendition of Freddie Scott’s “You Got What I Need.”

“I love the unity of the ‘Meet Me in the Gap’ concept. It really reflects the idea that although we may be from different parts of the world, when we come together, we can create something magical,” Monae said in a statement from the brand.

Along with the feel-good vibe of that video, what’s also note-worthy is the fact that the brand is bringing back its iconic rainbow-striped sweaters (you know, the ones you loved to wear growing up). Between the colorful stripes and the plush white and black faux fur coat Monae wears, there’s plenty of Gap pieces to put on your shopping list ASAP.
