Folk-turned-pop singer and viral sensation Maggie Rogers led a sultry and dreamy performance of her song "Alaska" off of her new EP, Now That the Light is Fading, during last night's Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

The singer first gained international fame when a video of her playing her now hit song "Alaska" for music mogul Pharrell Williams during a masterclass showcase as a student at NYU's famed Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. Pharrell was so impressed with the song that the after effects of it left him speechless and moved. The song (and video) went on to catapult the singer—and her music—into the major musical stratosphere; giving her major recognition amongst fans and record labels.

Now That the Light is Fading is out now here.
