Singer-songwriter BANKS delivered a characteristically compelling performance on Friday’s “Late Show with David Letterman.”

And she did it from within a reflective, hexagonal box.

Driven by stellar vocals and arresting visuals, the memorable rendition of “Beggin for Thread” underscored BANKS’ unique prowess as an artist. She can remain accessible and engaging without sacrificing her eccentricities.

Few possess that ability. Even fewer can communicate it within the confines of a late night talk show performance.

BANKS did so on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last August. She did so on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” last September. And she did so on CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” this Friday.

Watch BANKS’ “Late Show” rendition of “Beggin for Thread” below:
