Janelle Monae Revamps David Bowie's 'Heroes' for Letterman

Janelle Monae waves to her fans while posing for photos outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre following her appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday (June 11) in New York City.

The 28-year-old singer performed her version of the David Bowie classic “Heroes,” which is featured on the Pepsi Beats of the Beautiful Game compilation album.

“It was a collaborative effort between Pepsi and me. As we were going through songs, his name came up, of course — I love him. I think he has done some exceptional work and he has inspired not just me, but many people with this song. I thought it would be the perfect song. I really do love the fact that it tied into a big project that has a lot of really eclectic artists on it,” Janelle told the Huffington Post. “The lyrics to ‘Heroes’ also represent the anti-bullying campaign. The Young Astronauts production company made this video that’s just so empowering that speaks out against it. I hope young people are really inspired by it and hear that message and are able to carry it with them as they go to school, and throughout their lives.”
