Janelle Monáe & the Roots 'Little Wing' (Jimi Hendrix cover) (live on 'Fallon')
Jimi Hendrix isn't around to promote his latest posthumous album, People, Hell and Angels, but Janelle Monáe and the Roots helped to spread the word about the newly released collection by performing "Little Wing" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
