"Her spirit is irrepressible, and she brings life to everything she touches. Let her music touch your soul. Let her spirit fill you with life."
Peter Gabriel
"Angélique Kidjo versteht sich auf die Kunst, ihre eigene Hingabe zur Musik und ihre positive Energie auf ihr Publikum zu übertragen. Beseelt und mit lächelnden Gesichtern gingen ihre Zuhörer an diesem lauen Sommerabend nach Hause."
