India Arie

Singer/Songwriter

A Grammy-winning songstress who’s hit single “Brown Skin” became a heartfelt anthem for brown-skinned sistas everywhere, India Arie is one of the towering figures of neo-soul. After being discovered singing second-stage at 1998’s Lilith Fair, the Atlanta-raised singer was signed to Motown by Kedar Massenberg. Her debut LP, Acoustic Soul, while going double platinum, introduced America to a singer whose afro-centric look went contrary to what pop music lovers were used to. Her thoughtful hits like “I Am Not My Hair” challenged beauty norms. And fans continuously followed along, sending India’s sophomore LP, Voyage to India, platinum and Testimony, Vol. 1: Life & Relationship gold.
