  • "We all had such a great time filming this video," says Rhiannon Giddens of this video, directed by Peter Zavadil, for "Black Is the Color," off her 2015 debut solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn. "We were so honored to set our story—an old love story rediscovered—on the campus of Fisk University, a Nashville HBCU that dates back to 1866.

  • Rhiannon Giddens performs Edith Piaf's beloved song "La Vie en Rose." She writes: "This is for Paris, and Beirut, and Kenya, and Charleston, and so many others; for countless innocent people devastated by terrorism—which is just a word for organized hatred and inhumanity. We have to keep seeing the world in shades of rose—we have to keep hoping for peace and working for change and believing that with our art, our love, our knowledge, and most of all, our empathy and understanding for our fellow human beings, we can make a difference."
