The singer-songwriter performed “Cranes in the Sky” and “Don’t Touch my Hair”, both songs from her newest album, A Seat At The Table, for the first time on November 6th episode of Saturday Night Live. The album, Solange’s fourth, which she worked on for four years, is truly a gift—as was this performance.Dressed as the true ethereal queen that she is, Solange performed “Cranes in the Sky” wearing a halo braided and hand beaded by artist Shani Crowe. It took Crowe over 40 hours to complete. Erickson Beamon collaborated with Swarovski to create the custom crystal dress and earrings for the performance, a look created by stylists Jason Rembert and Eric McNeal.
