Live Video of the Day: "Strange Fruit" (Jill Scott)

This past Friday, A&E along with several other broadcast channels air the telecast of Shining A Light: A Concert for Progress on Race in America.

While there were several solid performances, Jill Scott by far and wide offered the performance of the night with her spine-tingling rendition of "Strange Fruit," made famous most notably by Billie Holiday.

Instead of trying to mimic Holiday's rendition of "Strange Fruit," Scott offered her own interpretation that brought a tear to my eye and hears at the end. With that said, take a few minutes to truly embrace Scott and her powerful moment on "Strange Fruit."
