Watch: Lauryn Hill Electrifies ‘Fallon’ With ‘Feeling Good’ [Performance]

Case in point, this evening on the ‘Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.’

The 8-time Grammy winner rocked the house with a cover of jazz classic ‘Feeling Good’ – one of her critically hailed contributions to the new Nina Simone compilation – ‘Nina Revisited.’

New Song: Lauryn Hill – ‘Feeling Good’ [Nina Simone Cover]


The reclusive Lauryn Hill returns to the spotlight in honor of soul legend Nina Simone.

In a rare move, the critically hailed songstress has covered a track – namely Simone’s signature hit ‘Feeling Good.’

The former Fugees front-woman offered up her rendition for Netflix’s upcoming documentary on the diva titled ‘What Happened, Miss Simone?’

Rolling Stone reports that Hill initially signed on to record a duo of songs for the project, yet was so stirred that she ended up recording six (and becoming the soundtrack’s co-producer).

Speaking on Simone’s impact, the 40-year-old, whose ‘Miseducation’ LP was inducted into the Library of Congress, gushed:

“Because I fed on this music, both hers and lovers like her, like my basic food, I believed I always had a right to have a voice. Her example is clearly a form of sustenance to a generation needing to find theirs. What a gift.”

But, while fans of Lagos, Nigeria were about to add their names to the growing list of the diva’s detractors for a missed show yesterday, Hill took to Facebook to offer her apologies for the inconvenience via an acoustic performance of her signature hit ‘Doo Wop (That Thing)’ with a few special guests.
