Anita Baker may be celebrating her 64th birthday today (January 26), but it appears she’s the one handing out the gifts.
After previous reports of an intent to retire from the music industry all together, the R&B legend – dubbed the “Queen of Quiet Storm” – sent her faithful fans into a royal frenzy last December when she confirmed she’d ended a dispute with her label over the ownership of her iconic catalog. That legal victory was apparently just the reinvigoration needed to send the diva back into the studio as she also announced she was working on new music.
As if that wasn’t enough, she also revealed she was plotting a return to Vegas after selling out a brief residency at the Sin City’s Venetian Resort in 2019.
Making good on the promise, Anita took to Twitter early Wednesday morning (as seen above) to tell her 626,000 followers that she’d be bringing her brigade of hits like ‘Sweet Love,’ ‘Caught Up in the Rapture,’ and ‘I Apologize’ to a Las Vegas stage in the spring.
As of time reported, the specific date(s) and venue have not been reported.
The update comes amid excitement for a number of Baker projects including a forthcoming memoir and biopic as well as new music.
