Earlier it was announced that he’s set to do the “Essence Music Festival” next month. Now comes word he’s doing the “BET Awards” also. His appearance at the awards will mark his first televised performance in twelve years.
After the success of his 2000 album “Voodoo,” D’Angelo stepped away from music, but the singer has been rejuvenated lately, performing at Bonnaroo’s Superjam and, as we just mentioned, lining up performances at “Essence” and the “Made in America” event in September.
