Baker has been one of the most distinctive voices in music for decades, beginning her solo career in 1983 and releasing seven albums.  Four of those records have been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling at least a million units, including 1986’s Rapture, which went five times Platinum on the way to move more than five million copies.  She has received eight Grammy Awards out of 18 nominations, including winning Best Female R&B Vocal Performance a whopping five times.

Her sixth studio album My Everything was certified Gold and debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 in 2004, proving she still had plenty of staying power. Her last record was a holiday release, Christmas Fantasy, in 2005; she hasn’t recorded since, and now she’s saying goodbye to live performances as well. But even 36 years after releasing her debut album, she remains one of the great divas of R&B.

This is Baker’s final tour, so don’t miss your chance to see this phenomenal singer-songwriter live. Experience and enjoy one of the most powerful, acclaimed and talented female artists in all of music, as she graces the stage for the final time.
