Lecture: D’Angelo (New York, 2014)
R&B icon D’Angelo is an elusive man, and purposefully so. This much we learned during this lengthy interview with Nelson George as part of Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York in May 2014. There were plenty of other takeaways as well: D’s first experience at the Apollo nearly ended in disaster. He likes going “deep into the onion” when recording. And Mtume gave him a much needed confidence boost at a critical moment. Check out the video above to hear D’Angelo open up in a way that few have ever seen him before.
