Why I Love Anita Baker

Tuesday, May 5, 2009
Shoot, who doesn’t?

There are not too many female R&B artists that posses the qualities of sweet lyrics, an unforgettable voice and stage presence that make you remember them forever (with the exception of Alicia, Jill and even Beyonce IMO). But there is one artist who tops even those exceptions and the average singers out there. Miss Anita Baker.

Anita has expressed every emotion us queen’s feel when it comes to our relationships with the opposite sex. We’ve apologized, got caught in the rapture, enjoyed the sweet love and gave the best that we got. She knows how to preach it to the public.

I got my first introduction to Anita as far back as I can remember, so I’ll say at the tender age of around 3 or 4. There was something about that Anita cassette my mom had in our Taurus Station wagon that just put me at ease (I was not one for car rides). So for today take the time and get some Anita in your system….it does a body good.

Oh and she will be throwin' down at this year's Essence Festival, along with Maxwell too (figuring out ways to pay to get down there...)
