Any hip-hop fans still sleeping on Beau Young Prince can get a wake-up call tonight at the Clubhouse.

It’s the little touches that she lends songs that give them personality beyond what he voice or the band can provide. She offered one of her biggest hits early on, “(You Make Me Feel) Like a Natural Woman,” shimmying to its sensual chorus as best as her 69-year-old body would allow her.
