Mark your calendars.  On April 24th, Grammy award winner Angelique Kidjo will be performing at the Kimmel Center during the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts.  Born in Benin, West Africa, Angelique is an international songstress, blending music from her West African roots, R&B, soul and jazz to create original works.  It’s should be an absolutely amazing performance as she sings with Hope: An Oratorio By Jonthan Leshnoff.  For more info on the concert, visit the Kimmel Center.

You can find out about more PIFA events on Twitter and Facebook.

Update March 21, 2011:  Sadly, Angelique Kidjo will not be performing at PIFA.  Sussan Deyhim will replace her as the alto vocalist for Hope: An Oratorio on April 24th.
