She may be puzzling at times, but there’s no denying Lauryn Hill has a sick set of pipes. The 40-year-old Grammy winner absolutely slayed her live appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
In a rare television appearance, Hill looked absolutely stunning in an all-black ensemble. Even more impressive was her cover of the Nina Simone classic “Feeling Good.” Like the many covers she’s delivered over the years, this one is as brilliant.
Hill’s cover is featured on the compilation album Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone. Originally, she was only slated to contribute two tracks, but Lauryn became so passionate about the project, she ended up recording six. Check out her performance below.
