We're Feeling Good About Lauryn Hill's Nina Simone Cover! Listen HERE!

Filed under: Music MinuteUsherLauryn HillMary J. BligeCommon

Listen to Lauryn Hill flawlessly cover Nina Simone's 'Feeling Good'.

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.

Ch-ch-check out her FAB version (below)!

Cannes is the festival that keeps on giving!

Charli XCX and Mary J. Blige didn't just pull out all the stops at the amfAR Gala last night, but also at Friday's screening of Southpaw!

The songstresses definitely made an impression!

The Boom Clap singer arrived in an edgy, beaded top with the matching skirt and platform sandals, while Mary was a boss in her chic white blazer, red romper, and her blue Chanel bag.

How patriotic of her! Ya know, cause France also stars the red, white, and blue colors on their flag!

And while she was done for the day, Charli kept on going! Afterwards, the bombshell paid a visit to Le Grand Journal for a quick performance.

The only thing we can't figure out is why she would have wanted to leave the show without wearing any pants!

Guess she does look more badass this way! What do U think???

Zoe Kravitz, Mary J. Blige, & Hailey Baldwin Win In Shades Of White At The AmfAR Gala

Zoe Kravitz, Mary J Blige and Hailey Baldwin at amfAR.

It's whiteout time!

Zoe Kravitz, Mary J. Blige, and Hailey Baldwin were beautifully bridal during the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala in Cannes on Thursday.

Although technically Zoe was the only one in pure white, while Mary was more off-white with her beaded strapless gown, and Hailey's Gabriela Cadena dress had the slightest touch of pink.

Of the three of them, we think Mary, with her blonde bob and sexy cleavage, was best dressed!

Though Hailey's gown was diaphanous and fairy queen-worthy, her strappy white heels were too edgy for the overall romantic look.

And Zoe looked great but there was no wow-factor, ya know?

Who is YOUR fave, Perezcious readers???
