Editors’ Notes

“I’m not the average girl from your video/My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes.” Remember when India.Arie burst on to the scene with these words? Remember how she, with her generous bod and unlikely persona, exploded the myth of the perfect woman so prevalent in the ’90s? India’s debut, Acoustic Soul, introduced a performer so fully formed, so confident, so at peace with herself that she couldn’t be denied. And you sure can’t deny Acoustic Soul’s subtle soulfulness and understated beauty. Sing it girl, loud and proud!
