April 4 is T-7 of the Soul Sanctuary Anniversary Countdown. We send birthday love to our hometown treasure Jill Scott and look back at two of the other talented sista vocalists who graced our stage in the early months: Renee Neufville and Alicia Keys!


Renee was the featured artist for an edition of the Martell Bleu Lounge, and besides sitting behind the keys to play and sing solo, she enlisted other luminaries like James Poyser to sit in during her set. Alicia Keys did an exclusive, private concert in conjunction with Power 99's SISTAHS Celebration. Our air conditioning was acting up, and she sweated through her set like a real trooper. Great talent, good times!
