    Cécile McLorin Salvant: "Thunderclouds"

    Cécile McLorin Salvant performs "Thunderclouds" from her Nonesuch Records debut, Ghost Song. Video directed by Matthew Edginton with animation by Salvant. "I suffer from insomnia, and so do others in my family, and in one way this song is about having to suffer in darkness," Salvant says. "It’s again celebrating something that is dark—that line, ‘Sometimes you have to gaze into a well to see the sky.’ It’s talking about looking down into the depths of a situation to truly see the beauty of it."
