Nina Simone's classic song Feeling Good has been covered too many times to count.
Whether by hopeful reality competition contestants, or celebs who've already made names for themselves, many of these renditions have been great. But none of them have ever really been able to capture the same tone and feeling of the late great singer.
That is, until Lauryn Hill.
The 40-year-old musician covered the iconic track as a part of an upcoming tribute album entitled Nina Revisited.
Her voice just glides effortlessly over the notes, but the emotion in her words is totally tangible! And when she lets loose with the riffs, you can really tell the feeling is genuine, rather than just an effort to sound pretty or precisely mimic Nina's notes.
Lauryn sings six different songs on the album, and is joined by other artists like Usher, Mary J. Blige, Common, and more. The tribute was intentionally set up to coincide with the release of Netflix's new documentary on the singer, What Happened, Miss Simone? which is set to release later this month.
What do U think of Lauryn's cover, Perezcious readers?
