For those of you who didn’t think that much of Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival were proved right by Questlove and D’Angelo. The reclusive R&B singer last performed in the United States in 2000, but was convinced by Questlove to return to the stage for an epic performance.

“I wanted him to see that,” said Questlove after she show. “That’s a green light. Me doing it wasn’t, like, running out of jam partners. Me doing it was basically showing him, ‘Look, you are so missed you don’t even realize how much you are missed,’ hoping that this will be the adrenaline boost that will finally get him to turn his record into the label. It’s done, it’s brilliant. I played on it. I know it’s brilliant. Now it’s just time to let his kids go and show it to the world. That’s what I’m here for.”

D’Angelo will perform next at Essence Music Festival in July and is set to start an European tour.

Passionate about fashion, writing and weddings.
