When was this performed? My guess is 1998? After The Dance? But my download says 2007, which can’t be right.
She crushes it. The professionally recorded one is from the Stormy Weather Benefit which I think is for Don Henley's environmental protection charity. I can't recall if it was sung in 1995 or 1998.

She also did an amazing version of the American standard "Sunday Kind of Love" a few years later at another Stormy Weather Benefit.

What I wish is for video from the performance of At Last!!!
