Ms. Baker is hitting the road starting in March, to gift her fans with a Farewell Concert Series before she enters retirement from music. This news comes as a surprise considering last January, while posted up on the beach, Baker announced to fans that she was retiring from her decades long music career, and that no tour or CD was in the works, despite rumors swirling that she was working on new content.
