Solange took the stage at this weekend’s FYF Festival in Los Angeles to deliver a performance that left the crowd begging for more.

Sporting all red–red pantsuit, red boots–Solange debuted two new songs, performed “Bad Girls” and her hit “Losing You,” and gave a soul-stirring performance of Nina Simone’s “To Be Young, Gifted, and Black.”

During the moving tribute, Solange was joined by on stage by Moses Sumney, KING, and producer Dev Hynes, and the results were magical.

Monday, Solange shared the video of the group rehearsing the tune, and tweeted, “I’ll probably cry every time I see or think about this.”

Take a look.

    To me, Solange’s voice has gone under the radar. She’s extremely talented and underrated.

    Solange has a great voice. Her song, “Under Construction” is an underrated classic. On her cover of Nina Simone’s “To be Young, Gifted, and Black,” she did a great job.

    I am definitely a fan of Sister Solange’s music.
