Article8 Angie Stone

R&B sensation Angie Stone

R&B sensation Angie Stone is scheduled to grace the stage at The Howard Theatre on Nov. 14. The performance is set to begin at 8 p.m.

Stone rose to fame in the 1970s as a member of Sequence, an all-female trio that recorded for hip-hop label Sugar Hill.  Several years later, she went on to win three Grammy Award nominations, two Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards and to produce four Top 10 R&B albums.

The neo-soul artist has captured the hearts and soul of her fans with her intimate collection of songs.

“I spent a lot of time over the past few years working with other people, writing with them, working with producers. And then one day I realized that while I was doing everything I could to help them succeed and watching them grow, I was losing pieces of myself in the process,” Stone said in a 2012 article on alwaysalist.com, before releasing her album Rich Girl.

During the late 1990s, Angie Stone was seen at the forefront of the neo-soul genre. Stone was the lead vocalist for Vertical Hold, with whom she sang “Seems You’re Much Too Busy,” which scored as a Top 40 hit. She started her solo career in the summer of 1993 and in 1999 released top 10, certified gold album Black Diamond, featuring hit singles such as “No More Rain (In This Cloud)” and “Everyday.”

“I shaved a lot of my originality off when merging with so many other people. Fans weren’t getting Angie Stone. They were getting Angie and so-and-so. I knew I had to get back to my own music and skills,” she said. “It’s time for Angie to do Angie.”

Since the release of her debut solo album in 1999, Stone has recorded six more albums, including her latest album Dream, which released on Nov. 6.

For her D.C. appearance, advanced tickets are $42.50 and $50.00 for tickets on the day of show. Doors are set to open at 6 p.m.
