You'll Have Her Stunning Cover Of 'Stand By Me' On Repeat All Day

Absolutely beautiful.

As David Letterman begins to wrap up his long stint on late-night television, the host was joined by musical guest Tracy Chapman for a performance that, he said, meant a great deal to him.

Among other songs, Chapman is well-known for heartfelt tunes like "Fast Car" and "Give Me One Reason."

And then, much to our delight, she performed a beautiful cover of Ben E. King's "Stand By Me" on "Letterman" last Thursday night.

USA Today called her performance 'flawless,' and Billboard agreed, writing: "Whenever Tracy Chapman takes the mic, you just know a pin-drop moment is coming. The Grammy winning singer was on rare pin-drop form when she appeared" on the show.


Watch the performance below:

According to Mic, Elvis Costello, Jason Isbell, and Dave Matthews Band, are other artists set to perform on the days leading up to the show's conclusion.
