Although, it's validation of some sort (at least in the number of views this video's getting) that she's gaining with this soulful number. Watch below as she belts it out in Washington Square Park, the High Line, and that median strip of concrete across from the Houston Street Whole Foods. Then, tell us what do you think. Is Willow the voice of a generation or just young angst?
