Earlier this year, R&B icon Anita Baker sent shock waves through the music industry when she announced her retirement on Twitter. She followed her announcement with a farewell concert. Baker’s biggest hits include “Angel,” “Rapture,” “Sweet Love,” “No One In The World,” “Giving You The Best That I Got” and many more have given shape and set the ultimate standard of what R&B/Soul music is all about.
Her songs are essential to the African American canon of music and it’s a big reason why most of us ’80s and 90’s babies are here. Because of her tremendous discography, she was honored the past year at the BET Awards. In her storied career, she has won eight Grammys, five platinum albums and one gold album. In a turn of events, the “Songstress” announced that she will make her return to the stage with a residency in Las Vegas, according to TV One News.
Although no dates have been released or confirmed as of yet, fans of the great Anita Baker are extremely excited that the legendary singer will be back on the stage.
