McCann Music Showcase with Angelique Kidjo
McCanners enjoyed a special Thursdays@5 this week with a music showcase featuring singer-songwriter Angelique Kidjo. Angelique performed four hit songs, one even got the audience signing with her.
The three-time Grammy Award winner is one of the leading artists in world music today, with 13 albums to her name. Her striking voice, stage presence and fluency in multiple cultures and languages have won respect from her peers and expanded her following across national borders. Kidjo has cross-pollinated the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America. Time Magazine has called her the "Africa's premier diva". Angelique will be closing out Summer Stage 2018, so if you want to catch her perform again, head over to Central Park next Thursday evening.
