Cut: "Good Mourning" (India.Arie)

I had the pleasure of seeing India.Arie's sublime concert last year at Club Nokia and one of the joints that truly spoke to me for some reason that night was India's cut "Good Mourning." Lifted from her third studio album Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship, "Good Mourning" even features a rift on India's classic ballad "Ready for Love," which was lifted from her debut album Acoustic Soul.

I truly do not know what was in the air that night, but the lyric "[g]ood mourning independence or is it loneliness" resonated with me on some other level this past friday night and India's entire show fed by soul.

With that said, take a listen to her cut "Good Mourning" and if you like what you hear, please revisit India.Arie's vast discography, which continues to grow with the recent release of her fifth studio album SongVersation.
