Summertime

November 4, 2014

Brings tears to the eyes, Annie Lennox live performance of Gershwin classic Summertime from her latest album Nostalgia.

George Gershwin wrote Summertime for the opera Porgy and Bess (1935).

Summertime is possibly an adaptation of the African-American spiritual Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child.
