Happy Two Eleven Day aka The Unofficial R&B Appreciation Day

Happy Two Eleven Day, Neighbors! I’m sure many of you are wondering why this date is so important to us but it is probably the significant date in the world of R&B. 

Today is the birthday of three of the biggest R&B figures: Destiny Child’s Kelly Rowland, “The Vocal Bible” Brandy, and the legendary D'Angelo.

This day is also one of the saddest dates in R&B history. On this date in 2012, we lost the incomparable Whitney Houston. Yes, Nippy died on Brandy’s (her biggest mentee) birthday. A travesty!!!

In honor of the wonderful day in Black Music Excellence, we have created a special Happy Two Eleven Day Apple Music playlist to help you celebrate appropriately. Take a listen and tweet us your thoughts on Twitter at @andersonstphl.
