Flashback: This June’s Diary Rendition Of ‘Lift Every Voice And Sing’ Will Give You Goosebumps

As the ladies remain hard at work on their debut album (while also preparing to slay the 2017 ESSENCE Festival stage, of course), their impressive covers and renditions are continuing to heat up the Internet.

Last summer, the vocally blessed songstresses had the opportunity to perform “Lift Every Voice and Sing” — aka the Black national anthem–as part of Ludacris’ annual LudaDay weekend in Atlanta.  As you might imagine, they absolutely killed it.

Group member Kristal Lyndriette recently shared this throwback clip of the group practicing for their performance in honor of Black History Month. 

Hello February 😊 #BlackHistoryMonth #InHonor #BlackNationalAnthem
