TLC Mosaic Love and soul

Terri Lyne Carrington‘s critically acclaimed 2015 album, The Mosaic Project: Love and Soul was the perfect follow-up to her 2011 release. The Mosaic Project: Love and Soul followed in the footsteps of its predecessor by featuring a rotating cast of female artists that include the late Natalie Cole, Lalah Hathaway, Chaka Khan, Lizz Wright, and the very legendary Valerie Simpson who lent her vocal stylings in the album’s fifth track, “Somebody Told A Lie.” Carrington and Simpson teamed up again to deliver an absolutely jaw-dropping performance of Billie Holiday‘s timeless classic, “God Bless The Child” in front of SiriusXM’s cameras. Both TLC and Simpson were accompanied by a stellar cast of musicians including vocalist Charanee Wade, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, Ben Eunson on guitar, bassist Josh Hari, Ray Angry on the keys, and saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin who offered a short, sweet, but very, very stank-face-inducing solo in between Simpson’s electrifying verses. Grab your favorite pair of headphones and watch Terri Lyne Carrington, Valerie Simpson and company tear SiriusXM’s studios upside down and right side up with their otherworldly performance of “God Bless The Child” below.
