Award-winning neo-soul artist India.Arie will appear May 29 at the Center for the Performing Arts in support of her new album Worthy.
Scheduled for release Feb. 15, Worthy is the seventh studio release and the first full-length project in five years from the acclaimed singer-songwriter, who sent all but one of her previous albums to the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 album chart. The Caribbean-tinged first single, “That Magic,” is already a Top 10 R&B hit.
Arie arose from the Atlanta music scene and found almost immediate success, earning seven Grammy Award nominations with her 2001 debut album, Acoustic Soul. She has continued with a string of top-selling albums and collaborations with artists as diverse as John Mellencamp and Stevie Wonder, whom she accompanied on his historic 2015 Songs in the Key of Life Tour. Arie’s 21 Grammy nominations have brought four wins, including a Best R&B Album nod for her 2003 release Voyage to India. She also has received multiple NAACP Image Awards, BET Awards and MTV Awards, and has delivered command performances for three U.S. Presidents.
