Janelle Monae x The Roots Cover Jimi Hendrix' "Little Wing" Live On Jimmy Fallon


Janelle Monáe and The Roots lit up the stage on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night with a souled-out cover of the Jimi Hendrix song “Little Wing” taken from his album Axis: Bold As Love. The performance was staged in celebration of the release of Hendrix’s posthumous album People, Hell & Angels. The album dropped on March 5th at number two on the Billboard charts. It’s arrival marked by a wave of excitement as fans of the late rocker clamored for the previously unreleased studio recordings. People, Hell & Angels comes ahead of the long-anticipated and recently controversial Hendrix biopic starring Andre 3000. No release date has been set for the film which is scheduled to arrive sometime in 2013. Check the performance below.
