6 Degrees – John Legend to 4 Non Blondes

Dedicated to Kevin Bacon.

Let’s play a game: Six Degrees of Separation. I first thought of this streaming idea when I wanted to compare Roberta Flack’s original “Where Is The Love?” to John Legend’s cover. This is what came from my personal inquiry.

John Legend and Corinne Bailey Rae – “Where Is The Love?”

This song was performed by John Legend and Corinne Bailey Rae and is recorded on his Live from Philadelphia album. It was originally sung famously by Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway…

Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway – “Baby I Love You”

Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway recorded many duets together, had a rough patch, and reconciled in 1978 to record more hits. Hathaway died before any of the new duets could be released. Roberta Flack is famous for recording “Killing Me Softly with his Song”…

Fugees – “Killing Me Softly”

The Fugees recorded Roberta Flack’s famous song for their 1996 album The Score. Wyclef Jean (Fugees member) released “Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill)” with Lil’ Wayne, Niia, and Akon in 2007…

Wyclef Jean, Niia and Jerry Wonda – “Sweetest Girl”

This acoustic version was recorded at Platinum Sound studio in NYC. Wycelf was a guest speaker/announcer at the 52nd Grammy Awards on January 31, 2010, where P!nk also performed…

P!nk – “Glitter in the Air”

Because of the success of her Funhouse tour, P!nk recently decided to do another tour this coming summer called the Funhouse Summer Carnival Tour. She performed acrobatic acts while singing, gaining her high worldwide recognition and invitations to perform at various award shows during the last year. One of P!nk’s favorite bands as a teenager was 4 Non Blondes. She worked with Linda Perry (lead singer of 4 Non Blondes) on her Missundaztood album…

4 Non Blondes – “What’s Up”

This song was recorded by the short-lived 90s band 4 Non Blondes. Linda Perry was the lead singer and writer of this song.
