with 7 comments

If you don’t know, just act like you do. Or I wont like you too much.

Oh My Lord I love you so much.

Why You Should Care:
She is Legend. Her voice and her story are a gift from God. One of the most powerful Altos/Contraltos I’ve had the honor of hearing Live. Her chest voice will make the earth SHAKE. Her voice can literally. LITERALLY. Fill an ENTIRE amphitheater with a resonance that even her own microphone and speakers cant handle (It happened at the Pala Casino; 2007. Check that link below. I was there). Its proof that Musical Jebus exists.  I’ve SEENT THE GLORY. PRAISE HER NAME.

And then, I mean, along with the 8 Grammys, 9 American Music Awards (give or take), 2 Gold Albums (last one in 2005), 4 Platinum albums and however many various international awards, jazz awards and Honors shes picked up along the way… there’s the plain and simple fact that her voice is probably one of the main reasons why I adore music the way I do. Waking up every other morning to the sound of this womans voice isn’t a bad way to grow up. Great way to tune your Perfect Pitch too.

With songs like “Angel” (Wedding Song Material), “You’re the Best Thing Yet,” Giving  You the Best That I Got, The Epically Truthiness Filled (Dont Believe In) “Fairy Tales,” and the old school jammyjam, “Do You Believe In Me?” all you have to do is basically shut up and listen. Then watch her sit down with Snoop Dogg for a quick interview and information on plans for a new album. Then go see her live. Then let her change your life.

And now… to add to all the glory… Anita Baker looks like she’s finally made to twitter. While it’s not verified (They aren’t verifying accounts until after the permanent switch to New Twitter, supposedly), It looks genuine and is verified by her website. So for now, I’m going with it.

Oh my God, I love this woman like she’s my Momma. *smh*

Enjoy The Links, and have a good one.

  1. Ok, so I follow your blog and enjoy learning things that I would have never learnt otherwise…because I am not cool anymore. I am getting older, and I pass magazines in the grocery store with a confused look on my face because I have no clue who anyone is anymore on the covers. But I will say this: Anita Baker was a staple in my home, along with Paul Simon, Stevie, and Sting, among others. So I had to join in the appreciation with you. When she sings, she makes everyone: men and women, feel transported to a space where we too are mysterious, classy, and that we can all sing with our souls. Ever heard someone who can’t sing trying to sing “No One In The World?” It’s precious.
    Thanks for this.

    • I appreciate this so much. Thanks for taking the time to share with me.

      Girl, I feel you. I feel that age creeping up on me. I still recognize the kids on those covers… I just dont care for their stupid monkey music. LOL.
      Your description of her and her voice transporting you to a place where you are just POWERFULLY awesome and sexy… man I feel you.

      So Glad you appreciated. Thanks so much again for sharing your thoughts with me; ALWAYS appreciated.

  3. Just happened to see your post on twitter, and by reading her comments (or are they tweets?), she’s “self verfied”. I’ve been enjoying reading through them. It’s definitely her.
    Absolutely love your blog today, always good to read positive stories and show appreciation where it is due. Glad I ran into it. (and will definitely post it on our fansite)
    There’s no other voice quite like hers and to hear it live really is an experience in itself.

    Take care,
