If you're looking for some soul-nourishing content, I'd like to point you in the direction of Cynthia Erivo's performance of "Summertime" from the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The 33-year-old singer and actress belted the soulful tune on Saturday as part of NBC's 2020 Wawa Welcome America July 4th Concert at the Metropolitan Opera House in Philadelphia. Crooning in a gorgeous glimmering dress, Erivo hit every note with ease and passion, enwrapping viewers in her vocal prowess. She posted the staging on Instagram, simply captioning it "Summertime," and earned praise from her followers in the comments section. "Light work," writer and producer Lena Waithe wrote. Actress Kathy Najimy also expressed her admiration, writing, "This was everything and all I needed today." Watch the powerful set above!
