She had a somewhat succesful album (platinum). She is Kinda soul/R&B. Maybe a little like Erika Badduh is. I have only heard very little. It's not bad stuff. She sings with John Mellencamp on that Peaceful World song. She got a lot of notariety because Oprah is a fan and had her on, so of course of 35 to 55 year old woman had to check her out

Hi there Zoocoustic. I bought India.Arie's debut album late last year. It is called Acoustic Soul and for me it has been an album that has grown on me over the last few months. Her album is mostly pretty laid-back R&B songs with lyrics dealing with love/relationships and how she perceives the music industry. There are 16 tracks, including a tribute to Stevie Wonder called Wonderful. There are some really good grooves and melodies throughout the album, and i do recommend it, but it isn't as good as an album like Miseducation of Lauryn Hill for example.

If you've heard of/listened to Jill Scott then you'll probably enjoy India.Arie. Hope that helps a bit.

She sings about not being a regular video star. She talks about not conforming to everybody else and how that makes you more beautiful than any supermodel/tv star/movie star etc. She's cute and I like the song. However, I don't see myself buying her CD nor do I fully understand where 7 grammy nods came from.

It's the puppets that pull the strings.

You didn't miss anything not knowing her/them!
I don't like this kind of music, it's boring IMO.

I let the melody shine
Let it cleanse my mind
I feel free now
