Anita Baker. Does her name sound familiar to you?
She used to be a big R&B star way back in the 80's.
My high school girlfriend and I danced to one of her slow songs on prom night. I even made my ex a mixed tape of Anita’s songs.
Ah, mixed tapes. Those were the days.
Anita Baker was in town over the weekend and Raft3r decided to watch her concert. I didn’t even know she is still active in the music scene.
She performed in a small open arena. Tickets were a little expensive. The venue was almost jam packed.
Anita performed all her hit songs. But the voice is gone. Anita had trouble hitting the high notes and could barely muster to finish the set list with enough dignity. Still the crowd cheered her on.
It's sad to see a seasoned performer go downhill.
