Oh, Henrietta, we can live on forever...

I just became aware of a musical tribute to Henrietta Lacks, the subject of last year's Go Big Read book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and a figure important to the history of science and medicine. The group Yeasayer (who describe themselves as "Middle Eastern-psych-snap-gospel") has written a song called "Henrietta." I think it's quite good and I applaud the band for making a tribute to her.
