Ladies and Gentlemen, Ms. Anita Baker.
She had a rather odd career, filled with arguments with record companies and subsequent absences from the charts and radio. Her biggest hit was her second album, Rapture, released in 1986. A collection of “adult R&B”, it sold 8 million copies. She announced her retirement via Twitter in January of this year at age 59.
This song was written by Lee Mendelson and Vince Guaraldi for the 1965 special “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and has since been covered by dozens of performers.
