Jazmine Sullivan’s timing could not be any more perfect.
The “Reality Show” songstress is gifting her soulful voice for a cover of late jazz singer Nina Simone’s 1978 “Baltimore” track, which will be featured in the upcoming Netflix original documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone?
The documentary will feature an array of unseen interviews, diaries, songs and letters, that will help tell the jazz icon’s story. In addition to the documentary, there is also a tribute album in the works featuring Mary J. Blige, Common and Lauryn Hill. The first song released online of the album is Jazmine’s cover.
Take a look at the video above where you will listen to the heartfelt tribute, and also see footage of Baltimore coupled with past interviews of Nina. – Richy Rosario
