Guests at an event in West Hollywood were in for a rare treat from Nikki Reed and hubby, Paul McDonald on Tuesday night.
The former Twilight actress and American Idol alum performed three co-written acoustic songs at Erik Wahl's UNthink: Rediscover Your Creative Genius book launch, where Reed couldn't keep her eyes off her man while they were on stage.
"At the event, they talked about how they have polar opposite pre-performance rituals," a partygoer tells PEOPLE. "He's a 'rock 'n' roller' who drinks whiskey. And she isn't much of a drinker, so she just meditates and takes deep breaths before going on stage."

We have a winner!
Shakira melted the hearts of The Voice audience members at the show's battle round taping on Tuesday evening in Burbank, Calif., when she showed off her new son, Milan, born in January.
While on a break between contestant performances, the singer beamed when she was handed her baby boy. Holding her son up so the cheering audience could see him, Shakira then sat back down in her red chair, cradling her babe while their picture was taken.
The show's host, Carson Daly (also a dad), went right over and starting 'oohing' and 'ahhing' at Shakira's little guy, while coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine took quick peeks before returning to their seats.
Moving Milan to the beat of fellow mentor Usher's "OMG," Shakira "was nothing short of a proud and doting mom," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. But just before the break, the 2½-month-old started to fuss – loud enough that his little cries echoed through the whole studio. After the crowd let out a cute 'aww,' Shakira handed her baby off to be taken backstage – but not before puffing out her bottom lip in protest. – Jessica Herndon
