After Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans badly in 2006, the city was flooded and partly ruined. In the aftermath a cast of local musicians formed the project New Orleans Social Club and recorded the absolutely outstanding album Sing Me Back Home, with singers like Cyril Neville, Ivan Neville, Dr. John, Irma Thomas and John Boutté. Boutté has an extraordinary voice and he sang a beautiful version of the Annie Lennox song "Why". Here's a live performance from the Austin City Limits show.
