Norah Jones covers Wilco's 'Jesus etc'

No politics here, at least not in any direct sense.  As many of you know, I am a huge Wilco fan.  And there is no more stirring Wilco song to hear live than 'Jesus etc,' off the remarkable Yankee Hotel Foxtrot album.

Norah Jones covered it at a benefit for the Bridge School back in 2008 -- powerfully.
