D’Angelo Performing At BET Awards 2012
Neo soul movement maestro D’Angelo is getting closer to a return in the spotlight following years in the dark.
After warming up through performances in small venues in Europe and sharing the stage with his good friend Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, D is ready to give his fans a little bit more.
The “Brown Sugar” singer will perform at the 2012 BET Awards on Sunday, July 1 in Los Angeles.
This will be D’Angelo’s first television performance in twelve years. BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials Stephen G. Hill was thrilled to share the news with music fans on Thursday via a press release:
“Usually, we love to keep surprises…but this year we want EVERYONE watching when D’Angelo takes the stage at the BET Awards! His talents have been away from us for far too long and we’re excited and honored that he’s decided to make his American re-entry at this year’s BET Awards.”
D’Angelo is said to be working on a new album that is expected to be released later this year or early 2013.
