Born in Toledo, Ohio, R&B star Anita Baker grew up in Detroit, where she began singing in her church choir. In the 1980s, she signed a major record deal and would have a series of hit albums and songs that resulted in multiple Grammy wins.
Now, Baker is calling it a day with her Farewell Concert Series. The tour comes to the State Theatre next month.
