Along with making the cut for Obama’s 2017 playlist, Brandi Carlile’s moving song, “The Joke,” made it to Jimmy Kimmel Live! where the strong folk-rock idol performed an especially powerful rendition of the modern anthem.

Supported by a string quartet and her band, Carlile is a fixture of hope and confidence as she belts the reassuring, sweeping chorus. More likely than not, it will make you feel all the feels. Long live, Queen Brandi.

Watch the performance below. Then, be moved by the song live and in person for Carlile’s May 18th show at the Merriam Theater. Tickets and more info can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
