The incomparable Anita Baker took to Twitter to celebrate her birthday and gave fans a real gift by announcing her long-anticipated return to the stage. She will perform starting in May 2022 in Las Vegas.
Baker, who turned 64 on Wednesday, Jan. 26, signed the tweet “ABXO,” but did not elaborate any further details on the future engagement.
The “Sweet Love” singer last played a five-show residency at the Venetian Theater in Las Vegas In May and June 2019 as part of her Farewell Concert Series but has recently been teasing a return.

In addition to her stint in Sin City, Baker also shared that she signed a new deal with Rhino Records, which comes after fighting with her former label, Elektra, for control over her master recordings.
She took to social media to announce that she has new music on the way as well.
With the master recordings issue resolved last September, classic albums such as 1986’s The Rapture, 1988’s Giving You the Best That I Got, and more have returned happily back to the living legend.
“STREAM. ON,” the eight-time Grammy winner shared with fans, despite her 2005 Christmas album and her 2012 song “Lately,” being the only major presence her music has on DSPs.
Thankfully, there is a box set of the most cherished hits from her catalog in the works.
