BiographyAnita Baker was one of the defining talents of the '80s, a singer who stepped outside the current of the pop mainstream and rose to the top of the charts with a combination of good songwriting, lovely production, and a highly distinctive vocal style. A Detroit legal secretary-cum-chanteuse, Baker layered her seductive, rich voice over highly relaxed accompaniment, creating songs that defined the best of mid-'80s Quiet Storm. Baker's voice is enough to keep you awake, though, and songs such as "Rapture" and "Sweet Love" offer plenty to this day.
