Erykah Badu – The Queen of Soul
Erykah Badu is a brilliant artist, talented singer and songwriter, magnificent bandleader and performer, and a successful businesswoman and citizen.
I consider Badu, the most talented female singer since Billie Holliday. Her only competition is Sade, who was out of the business for years.
Badu ranks among the greatest soul artists with D’Angelo, Sade, Marvin Gaye, Barry White, Curtis Mayfield, Raphael Saadiq and the all-time giants of the genre.
We could have chosen any of Erykah’s albums to showcase her talent, but Live remains one of my favorites.
