Solange, Dev Hynes and Moses Sumney Cover “To Be Young, Gifted And Black” And It’s Great

Solange and Dev Hynes were at this weekend’s FYF Fest in L.A., along with a lot of other people, and part of their set included this stunning cover of  the Nina Simone classic, “To Be Young, Gifted And Black”, in the style of Donny Hathaway. Solange released this rehearsal footage of their cover, and it’s wonderful — slow, smooth, minimal, with a touch of yearning — and rightfully deserves a place in the canon of songs of great power and majesty. It’s an instant classic. [Global Grind]
