Anita Baker

Anita Baker, born in Toldeo, Ohio, introduced music fans to the hit song "Sweet Love," the rocking passion of a performance and a jazz-tinged voice that sounded amazing singing R&B songs.  Although Baker had been making music since 1979, it was 1986's Rapture album that catapulted her to stardom. The album earned the singer her biggest selling album, a string of hits and two Grammy wins.  Her third solo effort, Giving You the Best That I Got, followed Rapture's success, soaring straight to the top of the charts.  In 2011, the sultry singer performed one of her biggest hits "Caught Up In the Rapture" at the BET Awards.
