Brandy's deemed the "vocal bible" of her generation. So, for India.Arie to bring her to tears with her own rendition of He Is" by B-Rocka herself at W.I.P. in New York City is definitely a big deal.
The "Sitting on Top of the World" belter has apparently been one of India's main musical inspirations growing up. Here's a bit of what India said to Brandy before tributing her with the beautiful performance:
"I’ve never got the chance to tell you this but the first time I heard you sing, I was 18 and I was like who is this? Who’s singing the way that I like people to sing?”
