Ahead of embarking on her trip to Australia for Soulfest, Lauryn Hill has reminded audiences everywhere why she’s one of the most celebrated voices in modern music.
Overnight, Hill appeared on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon where she covered the Nina Simone classic ‘Feeling Good.’
The performance was set up to promote the release of a Nina Simone tribute album, Nina Revisited: A Tribute To Nina Simone, but the performance couldn’t have come at a better time for promoters of the festival, with this performance likely to persuade punters who were unsure about picking up a ticket to head down to the festival.
Tickets are still available for Soulfest 2015, which has earmarked itself as ‘Australia’s first annual neo-Soul, Jazz and Hip Hop festival.’ The festival will be stopping off in both Melbourne and Sydney. You can listen to a spotify playlist that features the entire 2015 lineup here.
