Angie Stone talks about her hip-hop legacy, 'R&B Divas: Atlanta' and more

Angie Stone, the well-known R&B singer of popular neo-soul hits such as Brotha and Wish I Didn't Miss You Anymore, will close the annual Tampa Bay Black Heritage Festival's two-day weekend concert series Sunday at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park.

More than 30 years after starting out as a teenage member of the pioneering female hip-hop and funk trio the Sequence, Stone has racked up a pair of gold albums, three Grammy nominations and two Soul Train Lady of Soul Award wins -- a resume that makes her a standout among her peers.

Stone credits her lengthy experience in the industry to her deliberately dabbling in different genres. The tactic has helped her stay relevant in an ever-changing industry and avoid being a one-hit wonder.

"My strategy was to make sure I always had a hit song," she said in a recent phone interview.
