A master of international music who sings in five languages, Angélique Kidjo is among the most iconic and respected artists in global music today. On the heels of performing in the Tokyo Olympic opening ceremony in July, Time included her in the magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people. Widely recognized as the “Queen of African Music,” Kidjo has collaborated with everyone from Alicia Keys and Bono to Philip Glass, Carlos Santana and Ziggy Marley. In addition to winning four Grammys for her vocal prowess and innovative explorations of cross-cultural musical genres, she is also a tireless advocate for women and children in her native Benin and across Africa.
