Raphael Saadiq Announces Fall Tour with Janelle Monae and Anjulie

Ashley Cooper

Raphael Saadiq has answered his fans' hopes by planning an all new winter tour for this year, which kicks off in Seattle in November and ends in Minneapolis in December. This tour, which features his first live shows since appearing at a bunch of festivals this summer, from the Essence Music Festical to Bonnaroo, to positive reviews, will also showcase Canadian chanteuse Anjulie and Grammy nominee Janelle Monae.

Raphael Saadiq has been playing music since he was six years old, working up the charts as a member of the trio Tony! Toni! Tone! and then with supergroup Lucy Pearl. His current album, The Way I See It, was on many critics' "best of" lists for the year 2008.

Saadiq's brand of R&B is part dance, part philosophical, part feel good, and all pure energy. He is positive, engaging and talented, and is known for working with such artists as Joss Stone, Stevie Wonder, and Jay-Z, and for writing "I Can See In Color" for Mary J. Blige, so his tour should not be missed.
