Bill Withers was working in a toilet seat making factory when he wrote this song.
It was released on his record in 1971...that was 40 years ago.
The first video is Bill Withers singing this song back in the 70's.
I love the funky style and old school charm of this clip.
The second video is the band At Last singing there own vesion of "Ain't No Sunshine".
They sing the song in the new style of hip hop a cappella.
A cappella is music that is sung without insturments.
They are performing on the 1st season of the show America's Got Talent just a short time ago.
Both of these videos are soulful and powerful.
Which version do you like better?
