Watch: St. Vincent performs acoustic rendition of ‘New York’ at BAM Virtual Gala

St. Vincent performs softly in a dimly lit room

On Wednesday, the annual Brooklyn Academy of Music’s annual gala went virtual, and it saw St. Vincent performing an acoustic version of “New York” from home.

This year’s BAM Virtual gala was a tribute to the 2020 honourees, Cate Blanchett, Zadie Smith, and Jeanne Donovan Fisher. The hour-long event closed with St. Vincent’s intimate rendition, as she performed with an acoustic guitar in a darkened room with multicoloured gels casting a soft light.
