[embed width="560"][/embed]


If you didn’t catch Beninese icon Angélique Kidjo’s PBS special, then you missed out on one of the best performances in the series to date. Kidjo was accompanied by the likes of Branford Marsalis and Josh Groban. There was even a few numbers by the dancers from the Broadway hit FELA!. Don’t worry though, the internet has you covered. Enjoy this Kidjo cover of Bob Marley’s classic “Redemption Song” featuring some great back up vocals courtesy of Harvard’s Kuumba Choir.
