India.Arie's "Testimony" Debuts at No. 1!

We were all excited to hear today (after most of us returned to work from a very long holiday weekend) that India.Arie's new album debuted at number one on the Billboard charts. That's a first for this incredibly talented neo-soul songstress! Pretty exciting stuff ... Also, in sharing the great news to local "industry insiders" I've been told that bar-none this is her best effort yet, and that it hasn't left one individual's CD deck since he purchased it.

Tickets for her Aug. 10 show go on sale Friday at noon (they're already on sale to TBPAC members). This will be Ms. Arie's second visit to TBPAC. We're glad to have her back!

I also just noticed she's running a contest from her website. Grand prize is a swank autographed acoustic guitar and the new CD. Check it out. Her opening act, Lorenzo Owens, was a finalist on Oprah's Popstar Music Challenge.
