Anita Baker Announces ‘Farewell Concert Series’ Beginning in March
After announcing that she was retiring last year and breaking fan's hearts worldwide, Anita Baker is coming back.
The legendary singer announced that she's returning to the stage for one final trek, a "Farewell Concert Series" that kicks off in March 2018. She says the series is to commemorate her 60th birthday.
There's no arguing Baker's legacy. Long regarded as one of the most distinguished, celebrated voices in music, Baker reached the top ten on the Hot 100 twice ("Sweet Love" (1986 / #8 Pop / #2 R&B / #3 Adult Contemporary) and "Giving You the Best That I Got" (1988 / #3 Pop / #1 R&B / #1 AC)). She also has ten additional top tens on R&B and five on Adult Contemporary.
Last year, Andre 3000 announced that he had an idea to create a line of Anita Baker t-shirts to pay homage to her career, which was met with a promise to talk soon from the often elusive singer. Maybe this new tour will spark some movement on the 3K-created merchandise.
