There’s always a few musicians who are so great at their craft that they inspire you to almost attempt or emulate what it is that they do. For me that’s what Lalah Hathaway, songstress and daughter of the late, great Donny Hathaway, is one of those musicians. She makes me want to sing despite knowing that I can’t hold a tune to save my life.
Currently on tour in the UK, Hathaway went to the Jazz FM studios for the Nigel Williams Morning Show a couple days ago and performed a beautiful acoustic cover of “Breathe” from her 2008 album Self Portrait. Aside from her beautiful vocals, what’s so great about this acoustic performance is the fact that Hathaway met the pianist accompanying her only 15 minutes prior.
