I wished there was actually time for a conversation with ya, because I'd like to know more about you, ya music is one thing, but I would like to know what kinda person you are. Well if I'm supposed to get that opportunity it will happen. 'til then... remember Ebony Unique... don't forget that name luv, I promise you... Imma make it a household name one day.

A masterpiece indeed. I lucked up and copped this joint yesterday.......got my freak on and everything (while it played). I don't know if you were getting head during "Untitled" but I know I was. This album actually had my moms tryin' to play a theif when she came over yesterday. I must say ........... I'm feeling the entire album.

Greetings and blessings to everyone. Right now I am so at peace that after so long I finally have the essence of pure soul in my possession. I'm proud to say that I am the first person in my city to own a copy of D's album (I know this because LJ isn't that big). Thank you D for bringing about such an immaculate collection of songs and prose that envoke humanity and real music. You put time and care into your music, and that is what makes you such a profound artist--genius even. It's about time someone really put it down! You are the man. God bless. Peace.

Using Sound as a tool that can move the physical and the spiritual! Which is Y Voodoo is the perfect name for this album because it is a return to our spiritual roots and is not to be feared but, embraced just as our ancestors did before we were forced to worship the lie!

Yo D!<P>It was a wonderful day here in Chicago. I took a nice 3 block stroll down LaSalle street to pick up your jawn. Walked into the store and instantly noticed that about 60 people had your cd in their possesson. Well, I made it number 61. It was a wonderful sight, to see all these relieved looking people smiling, because they KNOW they got some good music. When I got back to my office, I closed my door and played it, all I could do was exhale, and smile. <P>Peace<P>Pseudonym-less Wendell

I feel like this CD is my baby too. I've been waiting for it since the release of Brown Sugar. A lot of my friends are crying, "It's not the same as Brown Sugar." I get disgusted and tell them that's point. D is showing us an evolution from what he was to what he has become. Brown Sugar was great but Voodoo is on another level, at a different stage. Then again, I can't expect them to understand because they are not musicians like myself and they prefer anything that makes their 12s jump. I appreciate the complexity and the variety that you have given us this time around. I fought three freshman girls, (I'm a junior in college) to be the first to have it at midnight and I won (I didn't really fight, I just out-smarted them). By 12:07, I was in my car jamming. At 12:10, you had put the Voodoo on me something dirty. Thank you, it was definitely worth the wait but um, please, don't be gone so long and try to come to Detroit on tour. Babygirl.

i'm convinced that this is the end... and i'm going to try to sleep my days away<P>alot of reasons.<P>for one - i PRE-ordered voodoo from the site (twec or some company), and it's not here yet - i'm going to go INSANE with all this snow, and no D in my cabin-feverish life...<P>for two - it's been a long time D. it seems like you were blessed enough so that you could become me, before i could become myself (and let the public know me) in this creative meta-morposis i went under. <P>okay - you came out first - then i get signed and i try to make my music the way my spirit moves me - THEN EVERYONE THINKS I'M TRYING TO BE YOU MAN !! LOL. <P>i listened to brown sugar 10 times, then i gave it away because it was affecting my writing and production. i knew you had something great, but i couldn't allow myself to come out being a mimic, so i looked towards myself more so that i could get some ill content and abstracts with my songs (spirit, the world, love). then i read about your project, and it's supposed to be on the same tip ! lol, i was shocked.<P>listening to voodoo (when it gets here) is going to be very hard for me to do. to keep it real - i may just cry listening to some of your material - and not necessarily because of it's beauty ( i know it's going to be beautiful though *). i'm going to cry because somehow during the time that we were creating 2 totally different projects, we seemed to have some kind of crazy psychic-creative connection - and you may have beat me to the draw with alot of things man :). <P>your lyrics may be a little bit like mine, you may present your voice the way i've done or would do. that shit is going to hit me hard, and i know i'm going to have to NOT release some powerful material, just to preserve the creative aim of my project - which is NOT SOUNDING LIKE ANYTHING YOU'VE EVER HEARD. i tried my hardest, and i know in my heart that i was winning at it, but people like to put every artist in the box - the public would surely put me in the "d'angelo box". i can see definite differences, and i'm sure you would too, but the world just wouldn't understand.<P>i don't know how many spins i can give voodoo - but i promise (myself) that i'll listen at least 1 time before i give it to my sister or something :).<P>your album, judging by the material i've heard will be revolutionary. i wish you all the best, because you deserve it. maybe next time around i can beat you to the draw when I come out - somewhere in that 2 - 3 years respite between voodoo and your next album. or will it be another 5 - 6 ? :). hopefully not D. there are people out there who are living for you. this masterpiece you've created will only sustain them for a lil' while - they need you more than you know.... peace out.... <BR> billy<P><BR>"you gaze confused/ at me from the stage while my camera rewinds/ yes - flashed a contraband memoir of an obsession divine/ in this life i want just a mere fraction of your prescious time/ when i relinquish to you all of mine" - <P><a href="http://www.geocities.com/gabbana36/billy1.html" target="_blank">http://www.geocities.com/gabbana36/billy1.html<;/a>

26783, The Album is So Fly!!!!
Posted by C_Jon, Tue Jan-25-00 08:14 PM
D,<BR> Words cannot express my gratitude for this album. I was literally skipping when I went to rasputins today, because I knew I was about to get the remedy for my case of the voodoo flu.(1 minute of voodoo will clear that right up!) WOW man!! When I got into the store I was some what scared, I mean I knew your album would be there, but then again: it I was like what if my nightmare that I had the night before comes true. What if the releasing people decided to hold back the release of this album "One mo'gin"(which happens to be one of my favorite songs)?!!! I would probably just have to jump out of the window(lol- just kidding). <BR> I walked between the metal detectors and past the security guards and the first thing I heard was Method Man and Redman rapping to "Left and Right" and that is when I knew that the day had finally come!!! <BR> I grabbed the first Cd I could find.There were so many. I wanted to buy all of them just for the hell of it!!(even though I know my college budget would not allow that) I stopped to listen to the next track on the radio in the store and it was track No.4 "the Line". I felt a big cheezy smile come on so I ran to the soul section and pretended like I was looking for something. I could not move. I felt my body literally grooving from the inside out. It was true magic!!!!!I walked around the store to the alternative section, so I could take a peek and see if anyone turned in any used Lenny Kravitz Cd's(somebody clippeed mine so I have to restock on that cats stuff- I know you listen to him right?) And then the most amazing sound rang through my head. My favorite song -that I have been singing since your recent concert(and the song that I played over and over until my soul blends tape broke)- "Send it on" came on. I almost hit a back flip!!! I wanted to stand there and listen some more,but I had to get back to school for my one o'clocl class was soon to start.I began to feel sad,because I wanted to listen some more, but then I remembered my whole purpose of coming to the darn store was to buy your Cd. <BR> I went to the purchase line and paid for the cd and then the sales girl told me that I could get a free poster with my purchase, so she sat the bag on the other side of the counter(near the exit where any fool could have picked it up, but they did not thank GOd!)until I came back. I went to the drawer and got a lovely poster of you and went back to claim my prize. <BR> I was so happy that I almost missed my step when I exited the store. As I walked to my car my left mind was going crazy shouting "I got my voodoo, I got my voodoo" then my right mind(I believe my conscience) said "chill out it is only a cd" then my left mind replied " but its Voodoo" and my right mind agreed and shouted a little too!!! I got to my car and almost ripped the cd to shreds(they sure do tape the stuff up real tight). I carefully lifted the cd out of its case and pushed the eject button to release The Toni's House of Music Album(aren't they cool!). I put in the cd and proceeded to drive to my school. The five minutes that it takes to get to my school seemed like five seconds. I sat in the parking lot and read the letter in the cd booklet. I felt tears come to my eyes. (that was so deep and true). Nobody ever thinks of music that way it is so darn (I think I am going to say it) Puff Daddy COmericailized(darn it I said it). It was kind of like those words were takin out of my mind. <BR>Well back to the real reason why I wrote this letter!(I can get to talkin and then forget exactly what I was talking about) YOur album is totally fly!!!! I knew it!!!!!It is the bomb!!!You are starting to change my feelings about the non-original music of generation X. Even though I know we still have along way to go, I am glad you decided to go with what is in your heart and not what you want in your pockets. Thank you man. With you and these other real musical cats(who do there own stuff and not commericiallize it) I think there might be some form of hope for this musically-challenged generation.<BR>Sincerely,<BR>C.Jontay<BR> <BR>"I am still trying to formulate a quoteable quote.....one that is unique,intricate, and orginal...."___me

Posted by spacecowgirl, Wed Jan-26-00 04:49 AM
says nothing. not only does one listen to this album; one experiences it. i don't know any other artist, since marvin gaye, who puts as much power in their backing tracks as you do. almost all of them could stand alone. the bridge in "untitled" is a perfect example of this. in the video my favorite part is when you sing the "if" right before "only if you want me to." you raise your arms on if and it appears as though you're lifting your voice up. the harmonies sung behind that one word are so damn tight. i rewind that part at least 10 times before i make it through the video. anyway, you have definately raised the standards in music once again with this album. i hope my shit will be as tight as yours. i look forward to your tour. enjoy your success. maybe one day we'll be able to work together.<BR>peace and much love,<BR>spacecowgirl

Thanks D! You are like Noah. Leading the flock of true music lovers across the rivers and floods of R&B bullshit. Thanks again, man.

Hello, Micheal (D'Angelo)<BR> I just wanted to tell you that you are getting alot of love from Birmingham, Al. People feel that you are a great artist because you talk about real things, not cars and money. One of my dreams is to meet you. I keep wondering how good could have created such a magnificent person. Your tour is not coming to Alabama, so I'm very dissapointed, but as long as I have your cd I will have my own personal concert. I heard that you like heavy set woman, well I'm not heavy set but I hope that you will like me anyway.

Hey D ( and those dreamin eyes of yours),<P>what's up. I just wanted to say that Brown Sugar is one of my all time favourites! I really feel that shit. And I cant wait to get Voodoo but they still haven't released it here bin Holland. <P>PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come to Holland this time, to Amsterdam and smoke some of that green sugar. You would sell out the place in minutes, a lot of people overhere dying to see you perform.<P>Anyway, keep on doin what you do best, keepin that shit alive. By the way, I did think you took a bit too long, releasing the 2nd album but Im sure its worth while!<P>a lot of love,<P>Samira
26802, Thank you for the greatest gift

Since your album did come out a week after my birthday, it was one present that was definately worth the wait. My friend was even gonna pay me 20 dollars to have this cd, but I asked her if she actually thought I was crazy; there's no way in the world. Anyways, after listening to it for the fifty-leventh time, I've come to the realization that you are truly a talented singer, composer, musician who has meaning in not only the words you sing, but the notes/music you play. THANK you for somethin WORTH listening to. Now, I can stop playin out my Brown Sugar CD at night when i go to sleep, and put in some new Voodoo.<BR> <BR>PS--One Mo Gin is my favorite so far. And how that dude from Hits From the Streets try to perpetrate with his remake of the Untitled video???...Straight trippin. He couldnt pull that kind of video off if he wanted to. Scared me when i saw that it wasnt your face peering from my tv.

Hello Mike aka D'Angelo,<P>Again you have done it . Putting together yet another controversial but very dynamic piece of musical greatness evolving right up there with the great ones. ( Marvin, Curtis, Stevie, & The Artist. Well done. I'm a writer/musician, who's been trying to get information on hooking up with people to either sale lyrics and or get something musically started , and was wondering if you had some insight on who, & where I can send material to to have it looked at. Hopefully it'll be through someone such as yourself or either someone closely within your inner circle.<P> Peace Out , <BR> mkGz
26805, Black Diamond...
Posted by guest, Sun Jan-30-00 01:58 AM
If there ever were such a thing as a "Black Diamond"....It would most certainly be U. I have only one request as a CD purchaser. Far be it from me to infringe upon "Artist Expression" but, when you make a LOVE song, mean it. Where am I coming from, you may ask? I read the lyrics to Left and Right, and the Rap section needs work, not to Dis Redmann or Method man, but as a woman, a Black Woman, if you want to make me feel secure, don't turn around and call me a chicken head on the next verse. I'm sure that this was just their way of expressing how they knock it down and all, but, it just didn't go with the beggining of this song in my most humblest opinion. Hope I'm not being too harsh. If you're wondering, I'm 33. Been there, done that. I do still listen to Rap, and HAVE purchased the Method Man & REDMAN CD. It's off the hook too. Keep writing those beautiful lyrics and show Black people how to LOVE one another, again......Rump<P>It was a pleasure listening to your sexy sounds...In my Bedroom!

Posted by guest, Sun Jan-30-00 11:44 AM
You are the best, most fantastic, wonderful musician of our generation. My cousin and I were talking and we agreed that you, prince and stevie wonder could do no wrong in our eyes when it comes to music. Your CD is baad. That thang is on point. I stood in line at Iverson Mall in Maryland for 8 hours just so I could be the first one to see you. Well, I was but was so nervous that I was at a lost for words. I wanted to hug you and just tell you how your music inspires my writing and my music. I read in Sister2Sister magazine that Prince use to be your inspirations, well Lord willing if I ever blow up, you will definately be put down as one of mine. You keep it real at all times when the others feel they have to front or fake and let money run their life. You are not like that and that's what I love about you. Okay, I'm gonna end the letter now but just so you know, i plan to see you when you come to town for your concert in March, I'm claiming it, I'm getting front row seats and back stage passes, so we will see each other again and I'll be sure to let you know all my feelings then. Keep On Keepin'On!!<P>Love Always,<P>Meredith Forbes<P>

Hey D and everyone else out there! I just want to say that I love Voodoo, it is great. I love the quote D'Angelo posted about recognizing his old CD brown sugar. It is so true. I bought it when it came out and at first i didnt like it. I put it away for a while and one day i found it. I wondered why i didnt recognize how tight it was. I still listen to that CD about once a week and it is one of my all time favorite CDs. And Voodoo is quickly becoming another. Thanks for puttin this stuff out D. Keep doin what your doin.<BR>Dustin

Posted by guest, Wed Feb-02-00 08:28 PM
I must commend you on an album that will stand the test of time. This album I think will be put up there with the greats...as you are an artist true unto that name you hold so well. I was a little worried at first that this album would be a disapointment, but it is far from it! It is phenomenal! nothing repeated all true artist's art! <P>So the one question that I ask all artist's of african desent: Do you plan to do a Canadian tour? (and not just toronto, vancouver and that's it. I mean across canada tour fr east to west?) This I know is a challange and to some artist's it's all bout the dinero but honestly if you are as true to your music then why not be true to ALL of your fans north and south of the north american border?!?! Please I ask you to consider this, if you do it would mean more than anything in this world to see a great and constantly evolving artist in canada. <P>Much Luv and respect<BR>from the one that smiles in canada =o)
26825, thank you

I listening to ya D' as I type this message. I'm lovin...The Root, Africa, Devil's Pie, Untitled, Send It On...took a minute for me to begin the catch the vibe you were sending out. I played the CD for my 76 year old Dad...said you sound just like Prince (The Artist--hard to teach an old dog new tricks)...my sister said all the songs had the same beat...then I put on my head sets on and well you know...you put that voodoo on me. On a more serious note...keep up the good work! I love the CD and can't wait till you light up Cincinnati.

Man for real, D'Angelo is not one of the best, better yet the best Male artist. It's like all of the song are as Lauren Hill says "Telling my life with his words"! At random any of his song seem to represent portions, events or, relationships in my life. Like "One Mo Gin" tells the story of Me and my ex-girlfriend. Though we aren't together, i'd just love to kiss her, and be inside her, "One Mo Gin". Sorry if i got a little explicit, there. But hey like D'angelo does it, things have to be said like they are meant. The thruth is the raw thruth. That is another thing i'd like to thank D'Angelo for, he took the bullsh*tting out of life, love and sex. fEMALES OFTEN GET MAD WHEN I LET THE KNOW THE RAW THRUTH. BUT HEY IF I DON'T TELL IT WHO WILL? If you're going to do something, be "Bout It". BUT HEY THATS IT <BR> <BR> THAT TERRIBLY HONEST DUDE <P> BABY D'ANGELO -AKA- PRETTY JEFF<BR>

I was on the site to check out the How Does it Feel video yet again and I came across the instore video. I must say, I'm very impressed. You all should have more behind the scenes footage like that. I wasn't able to make it to the instore that D'angelo did at Iverson Mall in the DC area, so I was glad to get a taste of what I missed. As an industry insider and a D'Angelo fan, I can't wait to see more videos like this on D'Angelo especially, but on other artists as well. Keep up the good work.<P>Melanie Hunter

I grew up listining to Stevie, Hatthaway and other shit like that and thought there is no way anyone could ever sound the way they did. This is true, but like them you are leaving behind a legacy. Your music appeals to those who crave for that true artistic flavour. It's also for those who just wanta let their spine unwind...thanx, D.

D, <P>Even though I WAS getting madd impatient for Voodoo to drop, I must say that it was worth waiting for -- though I don't know how much of that was influenced my seeing you bucket nekkid in the Untitled video *LOL*-- On the real, the album is wonderful, and you should be proud of it, no matter how long it took.....<BR>I can't wait to see you on tour!!!!!! God Bless....<BR>*missmo*

Hi Family,<BR>I am a 47 year old black female that KNOWS D'angelo is the best thang that has happened to<BR>woman since make-up. This young man has it going<BR>on (no I am not too old for him). Anyway, his lips ar luscious and round. His cornrows reminds<BR>me of he way my sweet mother kept my hair when I<BR>was a teenager and I knew I was fine. His <BR>physique and poise is masculine and graceful. His<BR>screams can wake up the dead. My inner thoughts<BR>of him are exuberant and he fulfills my every need. "Please come on home to me. Yeah, yeah, <BR>yeahhhhhhh!!!"<BR>PLEASE TOUR OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA. THE WOMAN<BR>OF OKC NEED HIM!!!!!!!!!1<P><BR>

dear friend D and the rest of okayplayers:<P>i'm a new log on okayplayer, so please understand i don't really know how to do this kinda thing.<P>here goes a little long tale about me and d'angelo. hope U comprehend and not get upset by the lenght of this message, please.<P>i've just bought and listened 4 the first time "voodoo". i live in madrid (spain), so u should figure out i've had a hard time looking 4 it at the few import record stores.<P>everything happens 4 a reason, so they say, so i B-lieve. i got my disc-man headphones on, and this brings me back in time; again to B-lieve i what i said above about "everything".<P>my girlfriend, mnica, bought this 4 me as a pre-sent last christmas. and certainly it has brought me a lotta pre-sents!<P>last july, i was in NY 4 my summer holy-dayz. i happen 2 b a great friend of O >'s music. sure everything happens 4 a reason! while in NY i found out that he was performing an aftershow at the "life" club after the "yahoo!" awards. sure i couldn't B-lieve it!<P>while in-side the club i came near 2 some1 dressed all in white who looked so familiar 2 me. after i passed by and by him a couple of times, i couldn't B-lieve my eyes: it was D'Angelo!!! this took me back in time in a mind trip of my own.<P>the moment i listened 2 d's first album. who introduced me 2 his music being a poor white guy in such a difficult place for sould music lovers as spain is? well, easy: one of O >'s interviews.<P>what do i like about D'? well, same as why i like O >, maxwell, etc. S-O-U-L music... what d's music mean 4 me? it rocks my soul. as the "voodoo" booklet says, his music has the best of the past in-side the pre-sent and future. these dayz the world is in-need of a rebirth of the soul. soul singers have found their place again commercially (not that they were outta r lifes).<P>it's not just that d's music i like, not; it's that it makes me learn and makes me grow up spiritually. i've began my own spiritual journey 5 years ago, trying 2 reach 4 my higher-self.<P>this goes back 2 the recent past at the life club in NY. why do i B-lieve in? GOD, LOVE, mankind's brodas and sistas, friends... i was so afraid 2 aproach D' that i finally gave up. plus he was around beautiful women... so i thought he wouldn't B interested in a white spanish guy telling him a tale about how much i like his music; he's probably tired of that same line. i was so afraid of upsetting him, i don't wanna worship either. what d's music means 4 me is more than 'nuff. he's so aware of how moving his music is 4 his friends (i don't like "fan" from sort of "fanatic").<P>so now if i may have the chance that D reads this i wanna tell him i'm sorry 4 not saying hi! 2 him and shake hands. thank U 4 the music, U r a very inspirational person and artist 4 so many, unique in ur own way; that is: Ur inspirations and Urself, my friend. 1derful is a so beautiful word 4 Ur soul, d.<P>dear okayplayers friends out there: please 4-give me if i upset U with this 2 long tale. at least i'd like that U c it as an inspirational and fony tale from just a friend out there...<P>thank U 4 listening...
26867, Thank You!

Thank you for the wonderful music you have created. This is only the second CD I can listen to all the time without having to skip a song. (The first on was Brown Sugar) Oh, and thank you for that video to Untitled. My nights are much better when I watch that video before I go to bed!!! Much continued success to you, many blessings to you, your family, and friends, and keep blessing us with your talent!<P>Tracee

I thank you over and over again for the wonderful video for "Untitled." My best friend and I were in the Bahamas this past week, and saw the video 5 times in two days! You are definitely the MAN and I want to just thank you for the wonderful album and video. Can't wait for you to come to Detroit!

D'Angelo,<BR> I cannot say I have EVER written to an artist, but I had to drop you a line. Brown Sugar was off the hook, But VOODOO?....Brother, you have work "The Root" on me! Thank you for being true to your originality, style and for being a real musician and not one of those who use the most popular formula that's out. Please know that your fans do know the difference between REAL instruments than just a drum track and a sampler.<BR> From "Playa Playa" to "Africa" you take us on a journey that we just don't want to return from. Again all I can say is Thank You! The wait was long, but it was so worth the wait. Friday morning I will be on that line waiting for my tickets to see you in concert.<P>Happy Valentines Day! Congrats on the new baby, may she and your son be as blessed as you.

He took too much pride in telling me in November that I had to wait. The Cd is da bomb. The Spanish Joint is going to be my theme this year. Spiritual housekeeping has been in full effect for almost two years. This was just the boost I needed to keep on goin! I can't wait to see you on tour in NYC!!! I just pray to God that I can get a ticket!?!<BR>Well until then, take care of the creative mind and beautiful soul.<P>Peace and Blessings,<BR>Kawahnda

In the last age the general level of music has been sliding slowly into a lower level. Thank you for making an exception and keeping the statistics from falling as a rock!<BR>I hope you have any clue how much your music is appreciated also on the other side of the world, espesially here in Amsterdam. Would there be any chance you make it over to Amsterdam in the near future?<BR>www.onis.nl

D, thank you. I'm one of those jaded hiphop heads that considers R&B to be "Rhytm & Bullshit," but artists like yourself, the jazzyfatnasties, and a few others are the brilliant stand-outs that beg for new categories to be created - our existing classifications don't do justice.<P>By the way...one of my peeps has a theory about that "Untitled" video...was someone "blessing the mic" while you were standing there singing? Come on, man, the people want to know...you did look mad relaxed...

Posted by guest, Tue Feb-15-00 02:58 PM
you sir, are the the culmination of american music history. all greatness stems from tradition, all art based on the notion of repetition with variation. all we can ever hope to be is just slightly more than the sum of our parts. i'm thrilled at last that someone is taking the wheel just in time to avoid that drop off of doom, cultural abyss. if i have see one more black man shoving money into the camera's face, show off one more rolex, bmw, fur coat, silver tooth, or pit bull dog, i'm gonna go postal!!!<P>your adherance to quality, artistry, and conscience is remeniscent of musical stalwarts like miles davis, james brown, and marvin gaye. thank you for saving us all, and hopefully, shaking prince out of the self-indulgent stupor he seems to be unable to shake off; the implied challenge in "voodoo" may be the just what the artist we all still call prince needed, a wake-up call to his own redemption.<P>thanks again for that hoo doo that you do so well.

Your VooDoo c.d. was the best thing I got on V-Day. I was so excited about getting it. I listen to number 12 about 50 times a day. I love that song. Well I agree with a lot of things you writen in your music. You seem like a down to earth brotha and I hope you have much sucess on your album. I hope to meet you soon.<BR>Love Alwayz,<BR>Kasey aka Pure PaSSiOn*

Posted by guest, Wed Feb-16-00 09:09 AM
Now that I'm here I don't know what to say. Be it anyone on the street with a word about "D'Angelo" and I'm off a mile a minute! Don't wanna ask general questions that I can find answers to on your website (or elsewhere). Can't believe I'm at a loss for words! Anyway - I guess if I met you in person and had only one chance to ask one question it'd be: "Let me take you out to dinner?" Nah, I'm just playin':) I guess what I want to know you couldn't answer. There's just something ahout your music, (like, L.Hill) that gets in me. Makes me want to know you. Not love you or be with you - all that "i'm your best fan" sh*t. Just to know you. To see just how much of me (that I see in your music) is really in you. But...as it usually goes...I'll never meet you (even though you're from where I'm from -VA) so I'll keep listening. Take good care of yourself...
26882, Tour
Posted by guest, Wed Feb-16-00 05:46 PM
I'm very pleased to hear of the long anticipated tour,but I hate that you are not coming to Memphis("M""TOWN), so I will just travel to see you in Nashville,Tn 2 hours away drive with much love for you. One question, when are the tickets for the Nashvill,Tn concert in April going on sale?
26883, I love you D'Angelo!!!!
Posted by guest, Thu Feb-17-00 06:15 AM
Hello D'Angelo. I just want to say that your new album is the bomb. It wakes me up in the morning and puts me to sleep at night. Your work is an inspiration to all who hear it. I would give anything to meet you. When are you coming to southern Ohio? I need to know so that I can get front row tickets. Keep doin what you are doin. Love ya much!

I can't wait until March 25th so I can see D'Angelo in concert in Dc. The first night tickets were sold out so fast I never thought I would get seats. Then they went on sale again @ 2 and my friend went to the ticket master and guess what ?<P>WE GOT 2ND ROW SEATS IN THE CENTER!!!!!!<BR>So D I will be looking foward to seeing you up close and personal.

d'Angelo,<P><BR> I think you are fabulous...can't wait to see you in Toronto at Massey Hall!!! How do I get backstage passes? I know that question may never be answered But I had to ask. My girlfriends and I are dying to see you! Particularly ME!!!! I am so excited!!!!!!<P>J.<BR>
26887, You
Posted by guest, Fri Feb-18-00 10:30 PM
Hello D'Angelo. I know you have heard it all. You're fine, goodlooking, etc... I won't tell you that I love you because I don't know you personally. That's not why I am writing to you. I can say that I am very intrigued by your intelligence. The way you feel about your music. It is so deep. I am glad that there is someone out there (in our generation) that actually cares how their "art" is displayed. You are obviously not just in it for the money. I have read all of your interviews and you really have a, how can I say it..,way of getting your point across. Everyone that I have talk to, about you, thinks that you are just another hood.. I don't get that when I read your articles. It was like reading a good book. So I would like to say "no thank you" for all the time you took to put Voodoo together. It is masterful....
26888, Concert Here???

Posted by guest, Sat Feb-19-00 05:09 AM
But I still bought the album, I wanted to say despite the things surrounding your new album, and the Southern Rap sympathizers (?) we have here, we still enjoy good music. Whenever you and the Roots decide to slide though, expect a full house (in a small stadium, hey we just got professional NBA teams to play here!) Do your thing.
Posted by guest, Sun Feb-20-00 10:19 AM
Very few tend to appreciate an artist such as you. The last time I heard so much hoopla over a man standing up for his craft was when Dirty Mind was released and critics still didn't take Prince serious for years to come. I want to thank you for allowing me to see the colors of the rainbow. Your music soothes and stirs a passion which lingers into the abyss of my soul and carries me through the day wanting, wanting, and never being totally satisfied. There's no cure for the continuous spell you cast with just a lyric, a hum, a note. No, you cannot satisfy my appetite without giving me you (or a taste!). I thank you, Mr. Archer from the bottom of my heart.
26891, To D'Angelo

<BR>Thank you for the new beats! I take you to bed with me every night, somehow your voice just makes my heart and soul open up, and brings me the peace that I am searching for. Would love to catch you in concert, but I live in Canada, so trying to get to you in the U.S. for this tour. Might have to let the images and your voice make do. <P>You are truly blessed, keep up the much appreciated work! Peace and love, Janice
