“Equal parts Marvin Gaye and LL Cool J, the consummate musician, and the coolest guy in the room” (Pitchfork), D’Angelo took the music world by storm with his exceptional musical prowess and virtuosic artistry. But behind platinum selling albums, multiple Grammy Awards, and sold-out world tours was a soul singer who descended into darkness and left the public eye as a result of the pressures of success, only to return out of nowhere with a landmark soundtrack of his lost years.

Step into the world of this musical icon and former Amateur Night at the Apollo winner in this digital stage presentation of the acclaimed documentary Devil’s Pie: D’Angelo.
