Bud Light Stage

Among the neo-classic soul artists to emerge in the early 2000s following the success of artists like D’Angelo and Lauryn Hill, Atlanta’s India.Arie was poised to make a major impact. A studied songwriter and guitar player rooted in the soul and blues of the past, as well as in positive-minded contemporary hip-hop, Arie debuted with Acoustic Soul. Rich with resonant hooks and mature lyrics – impressive, considering she had been writing songs for only five years – the album established a remarkable career that has entailed four Grammy Awards and five consecutive placements in the Top Ten of the Billboard 200. This will mark her second time performing at the Beale Street Music Festival (2003). – John Duffy
