India.Arie: Under rated voice. She is phenominal.

I have never posted about an artist before, but I am surfing GS and listening to India.Arie, "Voyage To India".

I must say that she is such a phenominal talent. The production and sound of this record is also incredible.

I wonder what her vocal chain is? I love the sound of her voice here.

I don't think she gets enough credit. She has more real soul than any current artist IMHO. Love it when she goes low.

Did I say I love the production on this album? Oh yea, I did say it. Amazing.

I thought really highly of her for all of about an hour.

She opened for Sade. I remember thinking "Damn she's pretty good"
But then Sade came out and tore the roof off the building.

That's interesting. I have never really listened to Sade (since her big hit in the 80's), but I have heard that before about her.

If she truly blows India away, I will probably like her a whole lot. Which Sade album do you suggest I get?

India is still my girl though. She is just believable when I hear her. Real soul.

I loved her first album "Acoustic soul"

the song writing is awesome, her emotion is really touching
and the production is luscious.

Have a listen to the first album you cannot doubt how great it is.

Damn which Sade to get, that's a tough one.
I think I'd start with a concert DVD

Amazon.com: Sade - Lovers Live: DVD: Sade
