This is great news. I hope he has cleaned himself up and is able to make a comeback.
"On the evening of July 6, without any introduction, Michael Eugene Archer, better-known as D'Angelo, stepped onstage at the Essence Music Festival. The neo-soul singer performed a 75-minute set, filled with funky guitar riffs, tight harmonies, sly two-steps and his signature falsetto.
His performance at the festival's 18th anniversary, sponsored by Coca-Cola, was undoubtedly the performer's most highly publicized and anticipated show since the one-time "R&B Jesus" toured in 2000 to promote sophomore studio album "Voodoo" (Virgin) and his second-highest-charting single, "Untitled (How Does It Feel)." Voodoo landed atop the Billboard 200 for two weeks and spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. "Untitled" debuted on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at No. 65 on Jan. 8, 2000, and peaked at No. 2 two months later."
I am hoping he brings NYC a show like this ... I'm thinking Joe's Pub, Highline Ball Room or Irving Plaza ... damn I gotta say it I do believe he's back!!! Absolutely amazing show.
This one's for the Prince fans, trust.
