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.
Maybe she needs a wardrobe malfunction to be popular again.
i chat mo ako sa YM ha.
Living the Healthy Life
ganns, Mang-asar pa talaga! Di ko dadalin CDs mo. Sige. Nyahaha
em, Yes. Yes. Chat tayo!!!
I love her songs especially "When You Love Someone," a duet with James Ingram:)
sonnet's, I dunno that song. Hehe. Gusto ko yun I Apologize. Saka yun kanta nya with Chapter 8.
I like her song Sweet Love! :p
len, She has a lot of great songs!
ah, Sweet Love and Rapture are in my all-time favorites, promise!
she, as a performer, wasn't that timeless after all. pero her songs will always be, right?
yummy friend, May punto ka dyan. Kaso wawa naman yunb mga nagbayad para makita sya. Tapos ganon lang sya kumanta. Hehe
wow i really like her... sayang naman if the voice is gone... :( sana naman alagaan nya sarili nya para tumagal pa sya as a performer...
paulette, My thoughts exactly. Kaso I think she's semi-retired. She rather spends time with her family than go on tour. Sabi nga yun sa leaflet ng Baltimore concert nya, "napilitan" lang sya kaya nga tinaggap. Hehe
Di familiar sa kin ang songs nya. Di ko ata kapanahunan haha.
wendy, Nyahaha. Ganon na ba ako katanda? Hehe
hindi ako familiar kay anita baker pero sabi nina tonet siya ang original ng "sweet love" na kinda alam ko naman.
sad naman yun.. pero that's life may ups and lows...especially sa boses talagang mahirap i-maintain ang intensity niyan. pero alam mo si Pilita Corales, okay pa rin at kaya pang lumiyad. heheheh
hitokirihoshi_kawaii, Yeah. Tita Pelits rocks!
Haaay... Ganyan talaga ang life... So pag tagal pala eh papangit na din boses ko?! BWAHAHAHA!
Chat din tayo!
Dito sa 'pinas, parating si Petula Clark. Parampum.
big eyed gal, Tapos pag tumatanda din humihina na rin ang hilig sa pagbubusina habang nasa kalye. Hehe
aper, Stand comic. Please stand up. Hehe
di ba trip mo sya noong high school?
pete, Oo. I was a fool in love. Nyahaha
Hahahaha! Oy medyo controlled na ang aking busina instinct... hahaha! Slight na lang at pag grabe eh they get the "finger" from me.
big eyed gal, Nyahaha. I'm so proud of you. Nag mature ka na. Hehe
