India Arie

One of a handful of neo-classic soul artists to emerge following the late-'90s success of artists like D'Angelo and Lauryn Hill, Atlanta's India.Arie stood poised at the beginning of 2001 to make a major impact. A studied songwriter and guitar player rooted in the R&B, soul, Motown, and blues of the past, but grounded in the post-hip-hop urban world of today, Arie's debut, Acoustic Soul, was rich with textured songs, hooks, and impressively mature lyrics, considering the artist had only been writing songs for five years.

Born in Denver, Colorado, to parents from Memphis and Detroit, music was always in Arie's life. The family moved to Atlanta when India was 13 and after high school she began playing guitar at the encouragement of her mother. Involvement in the fertile Atlanta urban music scene led to the formation of an artist's collective called Groovement and an independent label, EarthShare, which released a compilation CD featuring Arie's first songs. A second-stage slot on the 1998 Lilith Fair tour garnered major-label interest, but Arie eventually signed with Motown after being assured of having full artistic control.

Work on Acoustic Soul dragged out over nearly two years, but Arie's relentless pursuit of perfection and musical integrity yielded very pleasing results: as successful a graft of classic soul and modern hip-hop-style productions yet attempted. The album's first single, "Video," received strong radio and club play early in the year, and the full-length followed in March. Just over a year later, Arie had completed her second record, Voyage to India, and it appeared in September 2002. Four years later the singer hit number one on the Billboard 200 chart for the first time with Testimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship, which also netted her three Grammy nominations. The more outward-looking Testimony: Vol. 2, Love & Politics was released through Universal Republic in February 2009 and debuted at number three on the Billboard 200. She then returned to Motown, where she released Songversation in June 2013. ~ John Duffy, Rovi

I just LOVE India Arie's singing voice and my hubby loves Erica Badu's. They are both pretty and so talented. :)
I am not my hair. She killed this song. Better yet, she didnt kill it, she breathed life into it.

This is they type of positive message we need for women of all races and her work will carry on in the minds of those she positively influences !

Good man by Miss India makes me cry every time. It writes a story of my life after the sudden death of my husband SGT. Aaron Smith. He lives still in our son whom he never even see take his first steps. It's pains me to know these things but I continue to count my blessings and that song makes me feel like his presence will forever be remembered.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works.
