Today is a special day. A “Lovely Day,” if you will. Today, July 8th, 2015, marks the 77th birthday of one of the greatest voices in music, the Soul Man himself Bill Withers. The author behind timeless songs such as “Just The Two Of Us,” “Lean On Me,” “Use Me” and many more, previously celebrated a major milestone in his life when was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame earlier this year. Now today, Jhené Aiko pays tribute to him with an acoustic performance of two of his most popular songs: “Ain’t No Sunshine” and “Lovely Day.”
And, if you’re inexplicably unfamiliar with his songs for or some reason, I’ve left the originals below for your perusal.
