Lauryn Hill covered Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" for the upcoming Netflix documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone?, set to release June 26th. The documentary soundtrack will also feature songs by Jazmine Sullivan and Mary J Blige.
In a statement about Simone, Hill said, "Because I fed on this music, both hers and lovers like her, like my basic food, I believed I always had a right to have a voice. Her example is clearly a form of sustenance to a generation needing to find theirs. What a gift."
