…and I’m Feeling GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!…
Now don’t get it twisted… I DO NOT watch TV. Why? Well, because it distracts me from working on my photographer career (I’ll admit… I can get lost in the reality shows). However, today I was watching a video that my sorority sister tagged me on on Facebook by the guy named Dan Henig doing the FUNNIEST cover of Lil’ Johns smash club hit “Get Low” (TRUST! YOU WANT TO WATCH THIS). Meanwhile, I started looking at the rest of his videos and found that he did a cover of Nina Simone’s song “Feeling Good.”
Then that stared the avalanche of me getting on YouTube and discovering A LOT of songs by Nina Simone that are so so so so so so so famous that I bet people don’t even know that she did.
I say all that to say that I wanted to hear updated renditions of the song “Feeling Good” and I came across this very unassuming 13 year old girl, Carly Rose Sonenclar. I listened to her version of “Feeling Good” and I just gave goose bumps all over my body. Why in the WORLD does a 13 year old girl have such a HUGE jazz infliction in her voice?! She is the things that Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone, Billy Holiday, and Christina Aguilera are made of. This TINY TINY TINY girl is the DEFINITION OF MUSIC!
Point. Blank. Period.
I implore all of you to listen to her sing.
She is, simply, amazing.
The rest of the videos below are some of my favorites (in order of my liking) that she has done.
When you’re done listening to all of them… be sure to say thank you in the comments. =p
