Hudson's Ndegeocello covers Prince

Nate Chinen in The New York Times reviews Hudson's Meshell Ndegeocello show of Prince covers at the Highline Ballroom in Manhattan Wed., June 15. After playing "Get Off," Chinen quotes her onstage, “I guess that’s why I don’t have hits... ’Cause if I had to do the same song every night, the same way, I’d shoot myself.” Ndegeocello stuck to mostly early Prince tunes such as "Controversy," "Lady Cab Driver," “I Wanna Be Your Lover,” “Something in the Water (Does Not Compute),” and “I Would Die 4 U.” Meshell Ndegeocello performs on July 9 at the Weeksville Heritage Center in Brooklyn, (718) 756-5250, weeksvillesociety.org.
