Not knowing any of the songs that were sung in the medley I was expecting to lose interest along the way, but the quality of the singers was so marked that I had a second and third listen to truly soak in the talent on display.
These ladies are singers in the truest sense of the word, reminding us all that anyone can learn to sing but some people are born to do it.
Anita Baker Medley Singers and reviews:
|Faith Evans singing 2010|
Tamia: An underrated singer that displayed a smooth tone and a vocal delivery that was natural and easy.
Faith Evans: The soul in this woman's voice is incredible. Unfortunately, maybe due to the material she sings, its something that we don't see enough of. Live is where she shines.

Lalah Hathaway: Blown away by her tone and the unusual notes she chose in her staccato. Even had Anita Baker on her feet.
