Anita Baker Denies Vegas Residency Reports, Announces Memoir & Biopic in the Works

Published: Sunday 16th Dec 2018 by Rashad

Fans of ‘Sweet Love’ singer Anita Baker are feeling sour after their hopes of seeing the songstress on a Las Vegas residency were dashed recently.

Never fear, however, as what she does have up her sleeves may be just as exciting. Details inside:

Just a week ago we reported the 8x Grammy winner took to Twitter to tease the Vegas venture, claiming “it’s done” when a fan suggested she consider it.

 

Once the story started making its rounds on the net, Baker caught wind and took to Twitter to say:

 

Confusing, we know, but the retirement comment echoes the statement issued by the singer at the top of 2017 when she declared “no new music or tours were in the works” (click here to read).  A matter of semantics?  Maybe.  The top of 2018 saw her announce a “farewell concert series,” a jaunt that’s taken her to several major cities in the U.S.

Reminding supporters the outing was not a “traditional tour” but instead was comprised of a collection of “spot dates” rather than a fully billed itinerary, the correction did not stop the consumer demand.  After numerous sold out shows, fans – domestic and international – not only called for visits to their respective cities but also requested new music.  Baker responded today to those calls:

 

Today’s announcement of the memoir isn’t the first time the 60 year old’s mentioned penning her life story.  In fact, she recently hinted at work of a biopic:

    Saw her in concert a few weeks ago. She was very involved in all aspects of the production and seemed to have a great relationship with her band and singers. She was classy, professional and her voice was right on the money. The music was incredible too. And Anita wasn’t playing any games. She told people to put away their phones and she called out one woman in particular for ruining the mood Anita was trying to create. She was nice about it in the beginning, but someone took her kindness for weakness late in the show and Anita showed that person the door. Respect the vets!
