Anglo-Nigerian songstress Sade is set to make her first ever Festival International de Jazz de Montréal appearance at Bell Centre. The artist, who rose to prominence in 1984 with her album Diamond Life, announced her big comeback to the world's music scene earlier this year. She will delight us with choice cuts from her varied smooth pop, jazz, and soul repertoire, and play songs from her latest release, Soldier of Love. The album climbed to the top of the charts and garnered favourable reviews from Rolling Stone, Billboard, and Entertainment Weekly. The concert is presented in collaboration with Live Nation and evenko.
The announcement of an upcoming Festival concert by English-Nigerian star Sade was already an event in itself; now, add to the allure with an opening set by American music superstar John Legend! The singer, songwriter and pianist is considered to be one of the most powerful and recognizable voices in contemporary R&B; and Legend just further confirmed that by adding three more Grammys to his impressive collection: Best R&B Album, Best R&B Song and Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance. An absolute can't miss concert!
