I’ve been kinda missing Ms. Monae lately so imagine how excited I was to find video of her performing at the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize Concert AND this quote from her:
I am eager to get back to the studio and work on finishing my album. I stopped touring so I could finish the album. Actually, I plan on releasing two albums next year.
Wait WHAT!!! Of course, she says that she’s going to release them according to her “soul clock” but hey. So excited!
Here she is performing “Cold War”
And here’s the grand finale with all the artists performing Curtis Mayfield’s “Move on Up”. Make no mistake, this is the Angelique Kidjo show, and I am most definitely buying tickets. I takes a bit of a “Celine Dion at VH1 Divas Live” dip in the middle but, Angelique, Janelle, Curtis, orchestra, choir = amazing anyway.
