"We are on Earth to experience the consequences of our choices," points out Erykah Badu. A singer, actor, director, songwriter, earth-mother and spiritualist, the impact of the former Erica Wright on the soul, jazz, hip-hop and blues scenes has been almost unprecedented. An artist more opposed to the radio divas that make up so much of modern R&B could hardly be imagined - Badu is talented, proud, intimidating, vulnerable and wise beyond her years, and all with only three albums behind her.
Her power, she says, is fuelled by three of life's most basic lessons: knowledge, wisdom and understanding, observing that "Knowledge is knowing how a thing works; the wisdom is knowing how to use it and understanding is basically knowing what you're doing with it. That's power to me." Her story is one of strength against adversity and a self-belief that is a lesson to us all.
Erykah Badu stands at the forefront of a whole new genre of music. Before Macy Gray, Alicia Keys and Angie Stone, Erykah was bringing the unique sounds of neo-soul - the classic vibes of Motown and Stax smoothed by Jazz and toughened by Hip-Hop - to the people. quite simply, there is no other artist like her. Joel McIver's biography is a detailed and enlightening look at one of the world's great performers and includes photographs and appreciation of her magnificant music.
