Last year Anita Baker announced on social media she will be retiring from music. Her artistry expands over thirty years starting in 1970 when she was in the Detroit based band, Chapter 8. Her solo album, The Songstress debuted in the 1980’s and fans fell in love with her soulful alto voice leading to her platinum-selling album, Rapture. The artistry of the Sweet Love singer expands over 30 years as she has worked with other artists like James Ingram and Howard Hewett. Her contributions in music can be summed up in her seven albums, six world tours, eight Grammys, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Baker doesn’t want to leave the music scene without giving her fans a proper goodbye as she took to Twitter tweeting, “So much to celebrate with you in 2018, she said. “60th birthday in 25 days… farewell concert series beginning in March. We’ll paint pictures together two last a lifetime… let’s party!”
