Amazing Cover: "Ain't No Sunshine/ Lovely Day" (Jhené Aiko)

In honor of  Bill Withers' 77th birthday on the Fourth of July, Jhené Aiko performed an acoustic medley of Withers' classic hits "Ain't No Sunshine" and "Lovely Day," backed by her guitarist Jeff.

An inspiration to Jhené, she spoke to The FADER stating that "One of the things that inspires me the most about Bill is his attention to lyrics and storytelling... It wasn’t about his image, being flashy, or putting on a ‘show.’ For him, it was about the song. No fluff, just pure feeling. It was about connecting. It was about the music. And it is still about the music."

With that said, peep her sublime medley cover of Bill Withers' hit singles below and Enjoy!
