D’Angelo just won the internet by giving his fans the best Valentine’s Day gift they could have asked for. The 47-year-old Neo-Soul singer announced an exclusive Verzuz live event called ‘D’Angelo v. Friends’ which will take place on February 27 at the historic Apollo Theater, where every R&B singer from Billie Holiday to Stevie Wonder has performed. Here are all the updates about the event.

On Valentine’s Day eve, D’Angelo joined an Instagram Live with D-Nice Sunday night to drop the announcement. The news sparked a response from his fans within minutes as the singer was last seen arranging a show in late 2016. Therefore, it's been almost five years since his last set. Fans would love to know how Swizz Beatz and Timbaland convinced him to join the party. According to the Billboard-charting singer, the new show ‘D’Angelo v. Friends’ will be live-streamed not just on Apple Music but also on Instagram.
