Having touched the Neo-Soul genre with his sensual presence and stirring vocals some 15 years ago, singer-songwriter D’Angelo has become one of the most influential and key contributors to the rise of the Neo-Soul movement. Bursting onto the music scene in 1991, this Virginian native went on to incite vocal comparisons to the likes of music legends Marvin Gaye and Prince with his 1995 debut album “Brown Sugar” and its subsequent hit singles “Brown Sugar” and “Lady”, a top 10 hIt on the Billboard Charts, went on to secure the albums platinum certification for over 1 million record sales in the US alone. Following the success of “Brown Sugar”, D’Angelo took a four-year sabbatical from the music world and left fans yearning for a follow up to the “Brown Sugar” success. The year 2000 saw the release of his much-anticipated second album aptly titled “Voodoo” on Virgin Records and it received rave reviews and a new legion of new soul fans, dubbing it D’Angelo’s greatest work. “Voodoo” debuted on the US Billboard charts at Number One, selling over 320,000 copies in its first week and went on to win a Grammy Award for Best R&B Album. After an extended break, D’Angelo emerged again doing various guest appearances on tracks for artists like J. Dilla and Common, and a rumoured new album and European Tours in 2012 saw D”Angelo re-enter the music world for another spin. This will be the singer’s first show in New Zealand and Australia.
