In the USA, the day after Thanksgiving, this weekend marks the beginning of the holiday rush through to the new year. Hudson shot this exclusive video of Patti Smith singing during the Fortnight music party at Southpaw in Brooklyn. It seems fitting, since Thanksgiving marks a time of gratitude for plenty that Patti is singing this folk song. Check out some of the intial lyrics, below. Also, check out how at almost age 64 (December 30, 1946), the godmother of punk rock still spits a yellow streak on stage!
Congrats, Patti on just winning the National Book Award for her memoir of her early years with artist Robert Mapplethorpe in Chelsea, NYC!
“What is it children, that falls from the sky? Manna from heaven, from the most high. Food from the father. We shall live again, we shall live again!”
