Beautiful Black History Made By India.Arie Saluting Dr. Ruth Simmons, President of Brown University

Happy Middle of the Week Day!

Watch India.Arie’s tribute performance to Dr. Ruth Simmons, President of Brown University.  It was featured on BET’s Honors telecast. It is just what I needed for February 3rd.  Enjoy!

By the way, pianist Eric Lewis accompanied India. He is amazing. I saw him perform in 2006 at HR57 in DC. That night I fell in love with his music especially his composition “Puerto Rico” which stirred up childhood memories of visiting the beautiful island I call my adopted home (like Cuba is for me).  In 2009, he performed at the White House and woooowed President Barack Obama and FLOTUS Michelle Obama.  Click here to learn more about this fabulous musician:
