Last night, Solange performed at FYF Fest in Los Angeles. Alongside Devonté Hynes (Blood Orange), Moses Sumney, and KING, she covered Nina Simone‘s "To Be Young, Gifted and Black". She’s now shared footage of the musicians rehearsing that cover.

"It was a really special and spiritual moment of solidarity and pride, in celebrating our blackness," Solange said. "I was so grateful to share that with such beautiful like minded artists."
