Last nights’ “Black Girls Rock!” Awards show on BET was filled with many memorable and worthy performances, but this rendition of Nina Simone’s “Four Women” was undeniable.
Jill Scott, Ledisi, Marsha Ambrosius and Kelly Price brought the house down as they musically embodied “Aunt Sarah,” “Safronia,” “Sweet Thing” and “Peaches.”
“Four Women” first appeared on Nina Simone’s 1966 album, “Wild Is the Wind” and addresses stereotypes of African-American women. Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek recorded a song inspired by this called “For Women” on their debut album Train Of Thought.
Watch the incredible performance from Black Girls Rock! below.
