India.Arie - Testimony Vol. 2, Love & PoliticsWith her self-help messages, India became a favorite of Oprah Winfrey, who thanked her for the lyric “I may not be built like a supermodel, but I’ve learned to love myself unconditionally.” The Grammy-winning singer’s acoustic soul sound was also popular during Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. With her fourth album, India serves up more feel-good r&b on songs like “Therapy” and her Latin-tinged cover of Sade’s “Pearls” and even gets a bit funky with bluesman Keb Mo on the edgier “Better Way.”
