Lauryn Hill stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Thursday night and showed the world why she’s still one of music’s most admired and adored performers!! The 40-year-old New Jersey native appeared on the show to perform “Feeling Good”, a song made famous by the legendary Nina Simone.

Lauryn’s rendition is one of six songs she contributed to the just released compilation, Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone, which is a part of the Netflix documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone. “Because I fed on this music, both hers and lovers like her, like my basic food, I believed I always had a right to have a voice,” Lauryn previously said about working on the project. “Her example is clearly a form of sustenance to a generation needing to find theirs. What a gift.”

Check out Lauryn’s performance in the video below (it was really obvious how much Jimmy enjoyed it).
