Yara Shahidi 'Black-ish' Star Pays Homage To Sade
Happy Birthday Sade!
What a perfect birthday gift for Sade. Yara Shahidi, 16 year old Black-ish actress paid homage to iconic singer, Sade, 4 days before her birthday. The internet went crazy by the striking resemblance these two beautiful women had. Sade's music definitely has made an impact on many generations. The fact that a 16 year old paid tribute to the 58 year old singer speaks volumes.
When comparing the two photos to each other, it is clear that the Black-ish actress has matched the original Sade photo as closely as possible. Sade and Yara are both wearing hoop earrings, an unbuttoned denim shirt, a golden bracelet and a long ponytail.
Sade has given us hits after hits, I would classify her as the female voice of the 80's, and early 90's. She has a timeless voice, a voice that will never get old. In a 1992 interview, Sade admitted that she viewed herself as a perfectionist when it came to her music.
“When you make a record it’s so concrete, you know? You can’t run around and change it once it’s on vinyl. I know I don’t get angry with anyone except myself, really. I hate that I’m so hard on myself, really… It would be easier to blame somebody else, but I’m not that kind of person. So, however long it takes; sometimes the songs come really quickly, they just fall into place. Others you have to manipulate to get what you want out of them so they can say what you want them to say.”
My favorite song by Sade, 'The Sweetest Taboo' this is also one of her number one hits. Listen and watch the video below. Happy Birthday Sade!
