Violet Grohl is back a second time around to be a part of ‘Hanukkah Sessions.’ The 16-year-old had also participated in last year’s sessions with her dad Dave Grohl on a cover of Amy Winehouse’s ‘Take the Box.’ Foo Fighters took to Instagram to share with fans that Violet performed Janis Ian’s ‘At Seventeen’ alongside her dad on the fourth night.
“Born Janis Eddy Fink, a 23-year-old Janis Ian wrote one of the all-time classic coming-of-age anthems, ‘At Seventeen’—here it is as interpreted by Violet Grohl,” wrote Foo Fighters to share with fans their fourth night guest.
Grohl and producer Greg Kurstin’s idea of celebrating Hanukkah by sharing eight covers of songs by Jewish artists was a massive hit and is now taking place for the third year. This year’s Hanukkah Sessions were filmed in front of a live audience on December 5 in Los Angeles at the Largo at Coronet Theater.
Violet, who was a part of the sessions last year, has performed alongside her dad on multiple occasions, so she is no stranger to the Foo Fighters stage. She not only sang with the band at their Lollapalooza performance, but she also performed at both Taylor Hawkins memorial concerts in London and Los Angeles back in September. At the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concert, she sang a cover of Jeff Buckley’s ‘Hallelujah.’
The lineup so far has brought their A-game. The week started with director Judd Apatow’s ‘Blood, Sweat & Tears’ Spinning Wheel’ followed by Pink’s ‘Get the Party Started’ and 10CC’s ‘The Things We Do for Love,’ which was sung by Kurstin’s bandmate Inara George. The fourth night was for Violet’s performance which you should lend an ear to as the young singer has made her father proud with her rendition of ‘At Seventeen.’
