Tracy Chapman made a rare television appearance on last night’s episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers. The 56-year-old songwriter delivered a performance of ‘Talkin’ Bout a Revolution’ from her self-titled debut, making a slight lyrical tweak by singing “Talkin’ ’bout a revolution/ Go vote” as the word “VOTE” appeared behind her. Watch it below.
“This is the most important election of our lifetime. It is imperative that everyone vote to restore our democracy,” Chapman said in a statement prior to the televised broadcast, her first since 2015.
Meyers added: “I’ve always thought Tracy Chapman’s music skips your ears and goes straight to your heart. I’m so honored and excited to have her on the show. She’s living proof you can be a great artist while also speaking out for what you believe in.”
