Beyoncé and Eddie Vedder cover ‘Redemption Song‘ at Global Citizen Festival

After rocking the Global Citizen Festival with her own set Saturday, Beyoncé returned to the New York City stage to join Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder for a rendition of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song.”

The intimate performance featured just the two stars, alternating verses as Vedder accompanied them on an acoustic guitar. As they sang, footage of Nelson Mandela speaking about humanity overcoming poverty played on video screens above the stage.

“Redemption Song” is a song by Bob Marley.

It is the final track on Bob Marley & the Wailers’ ninth album, Uprising, produced by Chris Blackwell and released by Island Records. The song is considered one of Marley’s greatest works. Some key lyrics derived from a speech given by the Pan-Africanist orator Marcus Garvey.

At the time he wrote the song, circa 1979, Bob Marley had been diagnosed with the cancer in his toe that later took his life. According to Rita Marley, “he was already secretly in a lot of pain and dealt with his own mortality, a feature that is clearly apparent in the album, particularly in this song”.

Bob Marley Reincarnated On ‘The Voice Of Holland’

Bob Marley has been reincarnated, in the form of a 40-year-old Dutch hospital worker named Mitchell Brunings. Well, maybe “reincarnated” isn’t the right word, since Mitchell would have been in grade school when Bob Marley died in 1981, but you get the idea.

Mitchell auditioned on The Voice of Holland last September, wowing the judges with his magnificent voice. According to Urban Islandz, the video of his audition, where he sings Bob’s “Redemption Song,” quickly went viral, grabbing more than 15 million views.

On his Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) last fall, Mitchell told readers:

I am originally from Surinam, a small country next to Brazil South America, and that is a definite influence on my musical preference!! I grew up listening to Caribbean music, salsa, merengue, reggae.

Unfortunately, Mitchell didn’t win, coming in second place to Julia Van Der Toorn. Let’s hope he has a long and successful career ahead of him regardless.

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery,
None but our self can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
‘Cause none of them can stop the time.

How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it’s just a part of it,
We’ve got to fulfill de book.

Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
‘Cause all I ever have,
Redemption songs,
Redemption songs,
Redemption songs.
