About

Angélique Kidjo is a Beninese Grammy Awardwinning singer-songwriter and activist, noted for her diverse musical influences and creativity. Time Magazine has called her "Africa's premier diva."

Renée says, "I love when it's almost impossible to classify an artist. Imagine a singer-songwriter who combines music with activism, earning awards from the World Economic Forum in Davos and Amnesty International; who cites James Brown, Miriam Makeba, Nina Simone, Jimi Hendrix, and Carlos Santana as influences; and who has a passion for exploring traditional roots of popular music to create something new. Having collaborated with Alicia Keys, Dave Matthews, Philip Glass, John Legend, the Kronos Quartet, Bono, and the Luxembourg Philharmonic, Angélique Kidjo is the kind of inspiring artist for whom the term ‘world music' is too restrictive, and it's an honor to have her perform as part of VOICES."
