Erykah Badu is known for her seamless poetic lyricism, her blissful voice, charismatic (and outstanding) stage presence and sense of style (not to mention her stunning beauty), and generally, her fearless ability to make a statement. She released her first album, Baduizm, in 1997, and is since gaining huge recognition for her unique soul, funk and hip hop style, she has released five more albums. She has won a variety of awards for her music, while continuing to inspire. Badu is passionate about meaning and is known to be extraordinarily creative.
Erykah Badu has been one of my favorite artists for years. She wants to stand out and away from the shade that seems to have dominated popular culture. Her message is strong, influential and ultimately liberating. She creates an open atmosphere that makes me feel comfortable in ways I am not always familiar. I enjoy the feeling that hums ‘free’ into my heart and that makes me want to glide around with my eyes closed. All you can do now is experience for yourself. Listen to Erykah Badu with your eyes closed.
