In 1995, I was working at a record store when D’Angelo’s debut album “Brown Sugar” came out. It was love at first listen and I’ve been a fan of D’Angelo ever since. He released a second genius album “Voodoo” in 2000 and then took an extremely long hiatus. He’s been playing gigs off and on for the last year and I have some good news. D’Angelo is set to release a new single in April 2013! D’Angelo is playing a tribute to Prince tonight at Carnegie Hall and you’d be incorrect if you thought there was a chance in hell that I was going to miss out on meeting one of my favorites. D’Angelo was very nice and signed both of his CDs for me. He wasn’t super crazy about taking a photo, but he was cool enough to do his best to try and get into it for my sake because obviously he felt my excitement. 🙂 Thanks a million for that D’Angelo. Meeting you was a pleasure I never thought I’d have. Welcome back and please don’t stay away so long. Me and all of your other legions of fans have really missed you!
