Born in Benin and raised in Paris, Angelique Kidjo is not only a singer and songwriter of world music that features African beats and nu jazz undertones, but also an activist. Kidjo serves as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and also founded the Batonga Foundation, which provides young African girls with the educational aid they need to be leaders in their countries. Her African inspiration is paramount in much of her work; she produces a number of traditional pieces. However, her inspirations are varied and include pop, African and Caribbean music and zouk, a fast tempoed style of classical West Indian folk. Many of her songs also feature cameos by successful artists including John Legend and Bono. Kidjo's African music has become universal and her soulful pieces are known worldwide.
