Here’s Lauryn Hill, Slaying A Nina Simone Cover
On June 26th, Netflix will release “What Happened, Miss Simone?”, a reportedly-fantastic Nina Simone documentary directed by Liz Grabus. The movie is sure to be fantastic, but what’s even more exciting is the soundtrack, full of Nina Simone covers featuring Mary J Blige, Jazmine Sullivan and more. Most notable of all guests is Lauryn Hill, slated to do only 2 songs, but instead recorded six.
Earlier this month, Hill sang some of these covers at a premiere of the documentary. Here’s the first one, released by Rolling Stone. It’s a brooding, elated cover of “Feeling Good”. Hill still sounds like a million bucks.
