This cover of Nina Simone's Blackbird is so reverential and gorgeous, it feels instilled with the power of the original. Lady Blackbird, whose moniker I'm assuming was derived from this song, is a jazz singer from LA, and this seems to be her debut release having come out just earlier this year. The intensity of her voice is so rich and captivating; it carries all the gravitas required for a song like this.
