first_imgWith her upcoming hosting gig for the BET Soul Train Awards show this Sunday, Nov. 27th, soul singer Erykah Badu performed a short set for The New York Times that can be seen below. Joining her for the performance of “On and On,” and “Time’s A Wastin’” were Snarky Puppy keyboardist Cory Henry and long-time collaborator Rashad Smith on drum machine.Following the brief performance, Badu fielded some questions from an online audience before the short, impromptu session ended. The singer was her usual, eclectic self while answering questions about her work space when she gets creative, the gold floss that was hanging from her teeth during the performance, what artists she is currently listening to, her love of folk music (Crosby, Still, Nash & Young and Joni Mitchell, in particular) and her thoughts on doing more activism during times of turmoil and negativity.[via Okayplayer]last_img
