Lauryn Hill paid tribute to Nina Simone at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony in Cleveland over the weekend. She was being posthumously inducted.
After Andra Day performed a number of tracks in tribute, including Civil Rights Movement anthem “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free” and “I Put a Spell on You,” while backed by the Roots, Hill took over with “Ne Me Quitte Pas,” “Black Is the Color of My True Love’s Hair” and “Feeling Good.”
“It’s a new dawn/ It’s a new day/ It’s a new life for me,” Hill said to end the touching tribute.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony was taped and will premiere on HBO on May 5 with limited editing.
