Justin Timberlake and the legendary Al Green performed a special rendition of Let's Stay Together on Timberlake's 2003 NBC-TV special Down Home in Memphis. Green, 57, scored his first No. 1 hit with the song in 1972. But a few years after his hit, Green decided to become a minister and committed himself to the church. The Rev. Green still preaches and sings at the Full Gospel Tabernacle Church in Memphis, Tenn. Last November, Green released I Can't Stop, his first secular studio CD in more than two decades. Green and Timberlake's mom, Lynn Harless, are neighbors in the Memphis suburb of Shelby Forest, Tenn.
