Angelique Kidjo: Redemption Song

We're a few months off the mark, but have just stumbled upon this video of Angelique Kidjo's lovely rendition of the late Bob Marley's classic 'Redemption Song.' 

Hailed as 'Africa's premier diva' by Time Magazine (despite residing in New York), Kidjo is considered one of the continent's most celebrated female musical exponents. This performance comes from Angelique’s recent PBS special titled 'Angelique Kidjo & Friends: Spirit Rising' - a ninety minute program featuring an intimate group of guest artists and longtime friends including Dianne Reeves, Josh Groban, Branford Marsalis and Ezra Koenig
