In a recent shocking incident, American singer-songwriter Anita Baker was seen stopping her Houston Toyota Center concert mid-way. She allegedly told some fans in the front row to stop recording her and then later requested her security to evacuate the front row immediately.
Anita was disturbed while performing her popular track 1983’s ‘Feel the Need’
People reported that while singing the track she improvised and said, 'Early in the morning / Late in the evening, baby." She then requested, "Turn off the camera, baby”. She then added, "I don't know who you are, move back!" "Security, help them out, and I mean out of my front row," she added while the band continued playing in the back.
Anita Baker reacts to the incident
Anita donned a gleaming red jumpsuit for the occasion and took to Twitter and defended, "When they realize, they can't Stop Your Blessings?... they simply Lie. As in, Liability Screenshots? Are 4Ever," she wrote before referencing the Renaissance track. "Lyrics I'm as petty, as you are #Anita Baker.."
Baker is almost done with her tour celebrating the 40th anniversary of her first solo album, "The Songstress," released in 1983. The album made her an R&B superstar when it was re-released by Elektra Records in 1991. The "Sweet Love" singer has two more shows in Los Angeles and Oakland, California, on December 22 and December 23, before finishing her 15-city tour.
When Anita Baker revealed how she planned her career and life
She once told Mother of Colour, “I always have to pull back and recharge, ‘cuz it takes me forever to do a record, and then we go on the road. That’s two years out of my life on one project, so I usually take a year off, then another six to eight months to do the next one. But this time, I really just got caught up in life.”
