Like Aloe Blacc before her, Erykah Badu has linked with the folks at MADE and had the opportunity to perform with a string section. It’s part of a three-part series that focuses on her work along with that of artist Jaybo and Miki’s String Quartet. As such, before the performance, you get some background on Jaybo’s more recent pieces and basically how excited everyone is to watch Ms. Badu onstage. She proceeds to perform “On & On,” which is still just as awesome today as it was back in 1997, and “The Healer.” Go ahead, hit play and wave hi to the best thing you’ll see today.
You can watch the performance below. Badu takes the stage at around the 6:40 minute mark.
