In celebration of that,  David Letterman took the time out to honor the legendary bands’ 50th U.S debut anniversary and to celebrate, he invited some of music’s most legendary artists to perform [their songs] on his show.

One legend in her own right was invited: non other than Miss Lauryn Hill, performing the legendary band’s 1969 hi: “Something.”

This appearance was also notable because it also marked her very first televised performance in over three years!
