Norah Jones Pays Tribute to Chris Cornell With Tender ‘Black Hole Sun’ Cover [♬]

Jones honors Cornell with bluesy, solo-piano rendition of Soundgarden classic “Black Hole Sun” during a show in Detroit on Tuesday:

“Jones brought “Black Hole Sun” into her wheelhouse, toning down the crashing drone of the original and remaking it as a spare, bluesy number. She sketched a melody with handsome piano chords, and as she sang, she stretched words and toyed with the space between them. Around the four-minute mark, Jones suddenly left tranquility behind by elevating her volume and wailing the song’s title several times. The performance came to a peaceful end with a quiet, melancholy figure on the piano.” ~ RollingStone
