Two nights ago, Angie Stone appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Those who tuned in were treated to a high-energy performance of her single "Sometimes" (video) from her Stax debut The Art of Love & War.
Angie's an uncompromising performer onstage as anyone who has seen one of her shows will testify. She shoots straight from the hip when interacting with her enthusiastic audiences, often giving her viewpoint on men and relationships, clearly drawn from her own personal experiences.
Angie's tell-it-like-it-is attitude continues a time-honored tradition that Stax soul sisters like Mable John and Shirley Brown (among others) expressed in the '60s and '70s through their recordings such as "Your Good Thing (Is About To End)" and "Woman To Woman."
If you'd like to see the kind of souliciousness Angie Stone offered on Leno, catch her on tour. She's hitting cities all over the world, from Oslo to Chicago, so go check her out.
