We went to NOLA Jazz Fest SPECIFICALLY for Anita Baker’s Farewell Tour

She told us she was tired, but she was STILL out there giving us the best that she’s got baby.

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is a culture, food and music institution in this city since 1970. We've seen everyone from Lauren Hill, to Maroon 5 to local talent like Kermit Ruffins and The Soul Rebels there. But this year we had a laser focus to see Ms. Anita Baker while she was visiting the city on her Farewell Tour. And even though she informed us after 3 songs that she was exhausted, her voice was as strong as it ever was. Like butter. Why is she retiring again? Scroll down for more pics and links.
