Top 16 Girls: Watch Ndoni Mseleku performing ‘Fast Car’
Ndoni Mseleku performed ‘Fast Car’ by Tracy Chapman.
This song was a folk-rock smash for Tracy Chapman in 1988 – a tale of a working poor woman trying to escape the cycle of poverty. When she performed it at the Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute, it rocketed into the charts, later securing two Grammy nominations, for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. It’s been covered hundreds of times, including by Justin Bieber, Kelly Clarkso, and Daughty, but Ndoni will be reviving the 2015 version by UK DJ/producer Jonas Blue and singer Dakota. They imbued the song with some tropical house swing and it ended up charting higher than the original.
Ndoni flaunted the unmistakable depth, emotion and husk in her voice doing justice to Tracy Chapman’s universally adored smash, ‘Fast Car’
She carried us away, lost in the song and bagged a “WOOSHEM” from Somizi, we adore her stunning voice and tone (which are like no other) and brilliant cover of Tracy Chapman’s song.
