The BBC has included Angélique in its list of the continent’s 50 most iconic figures, and in 2011 The Guardian listed her as one of their “Top 100 Most Inspiring Women in the World”. A four-time Grammy Award winner, her striking voice, stage presence and fluency in multiple cultures and languages have won respect from her peers and expanded her following across national borders. Kidjo has cross-pollinated the West African traditions of her childhood in Benin with elements of American R&B, funk and jazz, as well as influences from Europe and Latin America.
