Grammy Award Winners YEBBA And Jacob Collier Sing Stunning Rendition Of ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’

A video of YEBBA singing Simon & Garfunkel‘s ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ with an all-Jacob Collier chorus is just out of the world.

YEBBA ft. Jacob Collier – ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ is remarkable with twelve Jacob Colliers and how we wish the video was a little longer.

Collier wrote while posting the clip, “This video of Yebba​ singing Bridge Over Troubled Water has long been a favourite of mine, so I thought I’d harmonise it for a bit of fun!!”

YEBBA responded in her own repost, that it was “the comfort I needed today.” The real name of the 26-year-old vocalist from Arkansas is Abbey Smith. She first received acclaim for her commanding performance backing Chance the Rapper on “Same Drugs” during a 2016 episode of Saturday Night Live.

She released her first single, “Evergreen“, and has since collaborated with a slew of high-profile artists like A Tribe Called Quest, Sam Smith Mark Ronson, Robert Glasper, and Stormzy.

In 2019, YEBBA’s collaboration with PJ Morton on a cover of Bee Gees‘ “How Deep Is Your Love” won her a Grammy Award for “Best Traditional R&B Performance.”

Jacob Collier, also 26 years old, is a Grammy award winner and a global singer in his own right. He is the first British artist to win a Grammy for each of his first four albums (In My Room, Djesse Vol. 1, Djesse Vol. 2, and Djesse Vol. 3).
