Photos: Corinne Bailey Rae at Vibiana

Last night, U.K. singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae launched her first North American tour in three years at a sold out benefit concert for KCRW. Vibiana, a former cathedral in Downtown LA, was the perfect setting to watch the Grammy-award winning singer. This is the first event of its kind held at the venue. Also, in another first, the performance and an interview hosted by KCRW Music Director Jason Bentley were taped for broadcast on Morning Becomes Eclectic this Friday, April 9. SO, if you didn’t make it to the show, you won’t miss out! Corinne Bailey Rae made her US radio debut on KCRW in 2006 and it was great to welcome her back.

    WHO WAS IN CHARGE OF THE SOUNDBOARD??? You could barely hear her lyrics except when she played acoustic - such a ridiculous amount of bass reverberating throughout the venue... so very disappointing! It was a gorgeous venue, she's brilliant, but come on!!!
