India.Arie Worthy Tour
May 26 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm EDT$55
India.Arie is going on tour and I am SO excited! The tour kicks off on April 30th at the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville. She comes to Detroit on Sunday, May 26th at Sound Board at Motor City Casino.
Her new album Worthy dropped on Friday, February 15th. “Worthy” is the four-time GRAMMY-winning artist/songwriter’s eighth album.
Says India about the new album: “My favorite definition of the word ‘worthy’ is deserving of regard and respect. The songs on this album implicitly or explicitly carry the message and the energy of the word. I set out with the title even before I had the song, which is unusual for me, but I wanted to remind people that even though the world ordains that you have to ‘do’ or ‘be’ something to be ‘worthy,’ that’s not true. There is nothing special we have to do or be, we all are worthy once we arrive at that realization. A person who feels empowered in that way is a much more powerful force in this world.”
Among her accomplishments; five Top Ten albums, 22 GRAMMY nominations, numerous NAACP Image Awards, BET Awards, MTV Awards, and command performances for three US Presidents. She has met with the Dalai Lama, touring the National Civil Rights Museum with him in Memphis.
Inducted into the 2009 Georgia Music Hall of Fame, India has joined Oprah Winfrey on multiple projects, a featured ‘Change Makers and Wisdom Teachers’ on Winfrey’s OWN Network and shared with Oprah her trademark blend of performance/spiritual teaching via SongVersation.
Tickets are $70, $55 and $50. Age Restriction 21+ valid photo ID required
