Last year I was seriously looking for Sade, I missed her sound and her style. I wrote about my search at the time click here. In the midst of all this frantic, "drop it like its hot" entertainment, I was missing the smoother song stylings of a true artiste. The last time I saw Sade on television was back in 2002 when I was living in Missouri. She was on tour at the time ( I knew there was no chance of her coming to my neck of the woods). I actually caught the "Stronger Than Pride" tour back in 1988 at Pine Knob in Michigan and the show was absolutely spectacular.
Sade was on David Letterman last night performing the song "Soldier of Love" from the CD of the same title. Letterman announced that Sade had sold 50 million albums worldwide and I was literally shocked. Since she showed up on the music scene she has recorded only seven albums, including this one. Sade's performance was awesome as usual. When Letterman came out to thank her for appearing, you could tell they had a genuine fondness for each other. They hugged awkwardly and shook hands, both smiling shyly. I really hope she sticks around for a while this time.
