Watch Brandi Carlile Perform “The Joke” With 13-Year-Old Benicio Bryant on “Late Night”

Americana stalwart Brandi Carlile took her talents to NYC on July 20 to perform “The Joke” on Late Night With Seth Meyers. Brandi’s performance featured special guest Benicio Bryant, a 13-year-old singer from Washington state who recently made it to the finals of The Voice Kids in Germany.

“Benicio understands this song on a level I can only imagine,” said Brandi. “When he sings it, it comes to life in a new way for me. He won’t be 13 forever and he knows how it ends.”

In addition to being nominated for three Americana Awards—Artist, Album (By The Way, I Forgive You) and Song (“The Joke”) of the Year—Brandi recently announced that she has curated an all-female destination concert vacation in Riviera Maya, Mexico, on Jan. 30–Feb. 3 that features Maren Morris, Indigo Girls, Margo Price, Patty Griffin, Lucius, KT Tunstall, The Secret Sisters and Ruby Amanfu.
