    The Twin Cities’ finest musicians and vocalists pay tribute to the music of Anita Baker. Anita Baker is one of the most loved R&B vocalists of all time. She is known for her soulful ballads, particularly during the height of the quiet storm period in the 80’s & 90’s. Starting her career in the late 1970s with the funk band Chapter 8, Baker released her first solo album, The Songstress, in 1983. In 1986, she rose to fame following the release of her Platinum-selling second album, Rapture, which included the Grammy-winning single “Sweet Love”. As of 2017, Baker has won eight Grammy Awards and has four Platinum albums, along with two Gold albums.
