Neo-soul artist India.Arie has never had a Top 40 hit. Yet since her 2001 debut, “Acoustic Soul,” the young urban-influenced singer and songwriter has had a career you'd hardly categorize as unsuccessful. With three consecutive Top 10 albums, 14 Grammy nominations and two Grammy wins, Arie pays faithful homage to the great R&B artists of the past, all the while relying on her laid-back, hip-hop production style and acoustic guitar. On the road supporting her most recent collection of songs, “Testimony: Vol. 2, Love and Politics,” Arie extends the feeling of the weekend with a Saturday show June 20, starting at 6 p.m. in Kanawha Plaza. $20-$30.
