#TBT: Celebrate D’Angelo’s B-Day With These Stunning Live Performances

By Sameer Rao Feb 11, 2016

Not much can be said about D’Angelo beyond what has already been said. You already know most of the story: How he steered R&B in a new direction with his 1995 debut "Brown Sugar." How he locked himself in with collaborators like Questlove and Raphael Saadiq at New York’s Electric Ladyland studios for years to make 2000’s game-changing "Voodoo." How the public’s reception of the infamous "Untitled" video and various personal issues compelled him to retreat. And how he released 2014’s "Black Messiah" in tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement.

So instead of listing his accomplishments, we’ll just let you bask in them. Check out some of his best live videos below, then share your favorite D’Angelo cuts in the comments!
