Solange performed at FYF festival in Los Angeles last night (August 24). Alongside Devonté Hynes from Blood Orange, Moses Sumney, and KING, she did a cover of Nina Simone’s ‘To Be Young, Gifted and Black’. She has shared footage of the musicians rehearsing for the cover which you can watch below. She commented on covering the song:

 

“It was a really special and spiritual moment of solidarity and pride, in celebrating our blackness,I was so grateful to share that with such beautiful like minded artists.”

My name is kira and I study Media and Communications. I live in the beautiful and wonderfully diverse city of Brighton. I've loved writing since a young child when I would write poems about my goldfish and leaves I found on the floor. (I'm hoping my writing style has slightly progressed since then!) I love listening to live music and try to go to as many gigs as possible. Follow my social media if you want to know more!
