“I love writing songs. I just aspire to pick people up. That’s my ambition. Most of my lyrics are little stories about my experiences or those of my friends.” ~ Sade, born Helen Folasade Adu, British Nigerian singer, songwriter, composer, and record producer.
I was introduced to Sade’s music during my Law School years…I immediately became a fan and her songs are on constant replay on all of my devices. Every time I seek downtime Sade is definitely the type of music that comforts me. She is to date one of my favorite singers; Stronger than Pride and Lovers Rock are two of my favorite albums of all time; having the opportunity to watch her perform live in New York was just unbelievable and one of my fondest memories. She did not disappoint and that night plays over in my head when I listen to some of her songs.
I admire the ability she possesses as an artist to go on hiatus for a period of ten years and then return with an album that will sweep you away and remind you one more time of why you love her music.
