This past Wednesday, May 21, R&B/Soul legend D’Angelo sat down with Nelson George at the Brooklyn Museum for an almost 90-minute conversation as part of Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York.
There were plenty of revealing moments including D’s first experience at the Apollo nearly ended in disaster, he likes going “deep into the onion” when recording, Mtume gave him a much needed confidence boost at a critical moment and much much more.
D’Angelo opened up in a way that few have ever seen him before. Watch the full video of the elusive musician opening up to George, and see friend and collaborator Questlove join him on stage below:
