Sade, has been part of the soundtrack of my grownup life and at every significant moment, there has been a song of hers in the background. She turned sixty today, but she is timeless, and so is her music. The Nigerian-born songstress is one of five artists that will make me go to live performance. Two of the other four are dead.

I also love her ethos about creativity — something that we forget in our times of fractional attention, multi-tasking and engagement as marketing. I wish more creatives would take a cue from her! I am waiting for her next album — very patiently.
