California Center for the Arts Escondido welcomes Grammy Award-winning musical performer Corinne Bailey Rae on her Sunlight/Sunlight! Tour for one-night only on July 24. 

Hailing from Leeds, England, singer/songwriter/musician Corinne Bailey Rae will visit San Diego for an intimate performance on Sunday, July 24, 2022 at 7:30pm. Bailey Rae shot to stardom with her self-titled #1 UK debut album, featuring the global hits "Put Your Records On" and "Like A Star." 

Bailey Rae has received two Grammy Awards, two MOBOS, alongside multiple nominations including BRIT and BET Awards. She was awarded her first Grammy in 2008 for Album of The Year when featured on Herbie Hancock's River: The Joni Letters. Her second album, The Sea (2010) was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize. The subsequent EP Is This Love garnered a Grammy for Best R&B Performance.

Bailey Rae returned in 2016 with "boundary-defying, epic music," according to NPR, with her third studio album, The Heart Speaks In Whispers, also declared "the best R&B of 2016" by The Guardian. The album featured the stunning "Green Aphrodisiac" named "10 best R&B songs of 2016" by Billboard Magazine and selected by President Obama for his summer playlist. The new songs soared in her live performances as Bailey Rae embarked on a world-wide tour, including festivals and a special guest appearance for Stevie Wonder's BST Hyde Park London concert. 

Bailey Rae has recently composed music for film and television, including the theme to Stan Lee's Lucky Man. She recorded "The Scientist" for Universal Pictures' Fifty Shades Darker opening title and soundtrack, which charted globally. This year, she performed a duet with Richard Hawley in eOne's BIFA nominated film for Best Music, Funny Cow, starring Maxine Peake and Paddy Considine.
