Solange is definitely ‘Young, Gifted and Black’ so it was only fitting that she delivered a cover of the classic Nina Simone song during her Sunday set at the FYF Festival.

Along with Dev Haynes, Moses Sumney and soul trio KING, Solange offered up a powerful rendition.

The star took to Instagram to open up about the special moment saying, “I truly feel proud to say in this moment I felt so young, gifted and black, something I for so long felt like I should never say out loud. I am so forever grateful for the moments I got to sing these words with such beautiful people, in front of such beautiful people.”
