"Tomorrow" — from the 1977 musical Annie and the 1982 film of the same name — is one of the ultimate feel-good songs that motivates positive thinking. 

With lyrics such as "The sun will come out / Tomorrow / Bet your bottom dollar / That tomorrow / There'll be sun!" and "When I'm stuck in a day / That's gray / And lonely / I just stick out my chin / And grin / And say / Tomorrow," the song is definitely one of our go-to's when we need a little pick-me-up on a rough day. 

Now, Postmodern Jukebox is giving the song a Motown-inspired twist with singer Shoshana Bean on lead vocals and two performers singing backup. Though this rendition of the song is certainly different from the original, it still packs the same punch, and Bean's hard-hitting vocals are sure to stun.

About a minute and thirty seconds into the number, things pick up a bit. Singers start clapping, the trombone and saxophone players chime in, and background vocalists even add in a little bit from Annie's other hit song, "It's A Hard-Knock Life," too.

"So good as always! Well done [Postmodern Jukebox]! I am glad you had Shoshanna for this one!  She rocked it with those backup singers!" one person comments on a video of the performance, uploaded to YouTube

So without further ado, be sure to check out the full performance below, and hopefully, it will lift your spirits as much as it did ours.
