Angelique Kidjo

Angelique Kidjo is a GRAMMY Award-winning Beninese singer, noted for her diverse musical influences and creative music videos. Her art roves across boundaries, genres and ethnicities, finding the connections that link musical forms from every part of the world, while still bonding closely with her own traditions. On top of her music is her activism and her passion for Africa’s women and girls. Last year she was awarded Amnesty International’s Human Rights Award for her work standing up to injustice.

Marc Broussard

Marc Broussard is a singer-songwriter. His style is best described as “Bayou Soul,” a mix of funk, blues, R&B, rock, and pop, matched with distinct Southern roots. In his career, he has released eight studio albums, one live album, and three EP’s. Drawing vocal and stylistic influence from Otis Redding and Brian McKnight, while bearing the preternaturally gruff vocals of John Hiatt and Dr. John, Broussard’s vocals are a work of art that can only be experienced live for the full effect. He’ll return to the Center for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration joined by his full, soulful, and energetic band.
