The internet was swooning during Sunday's classic Verzuz event thanks to the style and well-kept gray beard of the legendary Ron Isley.
The longtime hitmaker took the stage with his brother, Ernie Isley, and Earth, Wind and Fire as well as host Steve Harvey, and the two iconic bands took turns playing through some of their greatest hits on Easter Sunday.
“Soul music is just different. Everyone loves a good song, and we’re sitting here with two groups who took the time to write ‘lyrically sound’ lyrics,” Harvey said during the broadcast.
"These groups made me. This music shaped me," he added.
But the focus for much of the internet was on Isley, his beard, his coat and his voice.

There were an endless amount of jokes, both at the thirst emanating through the internet and at the performance itself.
