Detroit’s Own Anita Baker Retiring From Music


Caught up in the rapture of you….. Like so many of you, I grew up a big Anita Baker fan.  That voice is so magical!

As Baker’s 59th birthday approaches the R&B superstar has decided to drop the mic and walk away from the stage. A decision so many in the music industry are surprised to hear! With so many veteran singers still touring into their 70’s, it would seem that Baker still had some music in her.

A serious of tweets from the legend told that story.

I had the chance to meet Anita Baker a few years back at a Lions game of all places.  We were on our way up to the suites when Anita came walking up.  Everyone was like, “OMG that’s Anita Baker!” Turns out she was in the same suite as me!!! We were both guest of Ndamukong Suh.  Naturally I approached her and told her what a big fan I was and how much I love her music.   She was there with her son and together we watched a very exciting game!!  This was when the Lions were on a hot streak! Here we are showing off our 5 game winning streak!

Anita was exactly how you would want her to be.  Super sweet, genuine, kind, funny and just an absolute delight to hang with.  We had a riot in the suite that day!! God bless you Anita, and thank you for the music that lives on forever.  Enjoy your retirement girl!

Nowadays singers are too caught up in too much. They just don’t stand there and sing…. perhaps they can’t!   Pay attention young ones to how it’s done!

She has a voice of an angel!

I love all these live performances! She is the truth!

She had so many incredible songs!
