Earlier this year, soul-folk singer Valerie June released a gorgeous Jimi Hendrix cover, and now she has offered up her take on T. Rex's classic "Cosmic Dancer." As with the Hendrix cover, she really makes it her own and her version is truly great stuff. Valerie says:

"Cosmic Dancer" to me is a reminder that we don't have to waste energy saying 'shut the hell up' to any voice telling us that our light is not needed. We came to Earth to shine. We were called to radiate. There is one true belief:That we should spend our entire lives dancing in the light.

Valerie also has tour dates coming up which are listed below.
