Just in time for the holidays, India Arie‘s smooth vocals collaborate with legendary pianist Joe Sample for Christmas With Friends. This marks the singer’s first Christmas album and it features Kem, Michael McDonald, Tori Kelly, Brandy and more!
Getting Kem, Tori Kelly, Brandy and Michael McDonald on the album:
“I just kind of thought of them. I thought I would have to ask a lot of people before they said yes, but I didn’t.”
What she wants for Christmas:
“It’s his character. He’s kind, spiritual, intelligent. I wan him to be a freak for me. Between 40 and 50. He can be in the business but not in front of the camera. Seriously, that’s what I’m praying for, for Christmas.”
If you can’t wait until Christmas Day to get a musical taste of India’s new project, she brings her show to the Wilbur Theater on December 13th in Boston and will hit New York, Memphis, Pennsylvania and a host of other cities.
