This Tweet From Anita Baker Has The Internet Bursting Into Tears

Real rapture tears.

Published January 3, 2018

Early in 2018, fans have arrived at a bittersweet day: Rapture soulstress legend Anita Baker is retiring—again.

The eight-time Grammy Award-winning smooth R&B icon has graced fans with a 30-year industry spell, previously revealing in January 2017 that she was retired with no new music nor tour on the way. But January 2018 has turned over a new leaf for Ms. Anita, who returned to Twitter to announce… well, another return.  

“So much to celebrate with you in #2018,” she wrote. “60th Bday in 25 days…Farewell Concert Series, beginning in March…”

Last we heard from the Rhythm of Love singer’s prior announcement, she was soaking up all the pleasures of her retirement on the beach, revealing to fans that it had always been a dream of hers. But now that she’s dropping just one last treat for us before wrapping up the industry life for good, it’s the fans whose dreams are coming true, and they’re giving her the best reactions—and tears—that they’ve got.

  1. Anita invited all of her fans to party with her just #OneLastTime when she embarks on the spring-slated Farewell Concert Series
  2. And while everyone’s excited to get caught up in Anita’s rapture once again, they can’t help but get caught up in their feelings at the same time…
