Video: Jennifer Hudson Covers Bob Marley’s ‘No Woman, No Cry’

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson performed a fitting tribute to Bob Marley with her cover of the late legend’s “No Woman, No Cry,” as part of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’s” Bob Marley tribute week. The iron-piped songstress breezed through the reggae tune with some help from The Roots, singing in a Jamaican accent at times. Marley’s daughter-in-law Lauryn Hill will perform on tonight’s episode.

    I agree Vera…we don’t care that Camerom’s from the “islands”…that doesn’t make them an expert. Jennifer did a great job..ha ha and she’s not from the islands.

    It was nice. I was worried she would over sing on such a simple song, but she did it justice. Not my favorite cover, but still pleasant.

    Her wig looks cheap, and she is an average looking girl. When is this woman going to headline an international tour. She oversings too much, not my favourite cover, they should have opted for India Arie or Erykah Badu. The type of music Jeniffer sings is too commercial for me, she is a misfit for this tribute.

    I stumbled on this pretty girl resurecting No, woman,no cry. Didn’t reconize her and got it on my fav site. Jenn, you were beautiful and I never thought anyone could do this song . You nailed it and I will buy it .

    Misfit for this tribute?, who’d you expect could even try it. Maybe you had the show and Jenn pre planned to watch it . I didn’t and had no idea who this beautiful girl was singing til I typed in Jimmy Fallon and No, woman , no cry. No one in my family was a Bob Marley fan but Jenn knocked my wife and daughter off their feet. She’s black , American, and was the first to do it. There may be more but it won’t be outdone .

    Jennifer Holiday is a great singer, She is not going to sing every song perfect.Iam sure she respects Bob Marley ‘s music.It doesn’t matter where we are living now.What matters is where we are going when we leave this world. People are so caugth up in how one looks. The heart is what God is concern about.
