Angélique Kidjo returned to Carnegie Hall on Friday (11/5) for her first NYC show in almost two years, Mother Nature: Songs for New York and the World Beyond, which included songs from her great new album, Mother Nature, her cover of "Once in a Lifetime," and more. She was joined by a number of special guests for the show, including Philip Glass, Olu from EarthGang, Andra Day, Cyndi Lauper, Josh Groban, and Ibrahim Maalouf. See pictures from the whole performance by Ellen Qbertplaya, and the setlist, below.

Angélique has two more NYC shows coming up later this year, when she'll help celebrate the official groundbreaking of the renovation of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Michael C. Rockefeller Wing on December 27 and 28 (tickets). She's also touring through the rest of 2021 and into 2022.
