2018 is already full of surprises. R&B legend Anita Baker will step out of music hibernation this spring for a farewell tour.
The anointed vocalist announced the exciting tour news on Twitter on New Year’s Day.

Last January, the sultry songbird ushered herself out the music industry, posting, “Lotta rumors out there. No Tour. No CD. #Retired🎁 #BeachBum❤ #ThankUJesus😆”
We hope these farewell shows inspire Ms. Baker to return to the studio for one last album. She left us wanting more after 2012’s “Lately” and the duet tease with Mary J. Blige.
