This show is billed as Songversation, which is the title of her latest album. She performed some of the songs from that album at the 2013 Playboy Jazz Festival. One of those songs was Cocoa Butter. It is a song the audience thoroughly enjoyed. India.arie sings with power, emotion and conviction. There is a message in a lot of the songs she sings. She is a perfectionist and she is definitely worth the price of admission. You won't be short changed or disappointed when you leave the show.
