SoulTracks Lost Gem: Anita Baker's backing singers, Perri, have "No Place to Go"

Share this article

    Back in 1989, a little heralded single about homelessness, filled with beautiful harmonies that belied the serious, sad nature of the song's lyrical content, became one of the year's best cuts and introduced much of the world to the group Perri.  The four Perry sisters from Detroit, Lori, Carol, Darlene and Sharon, never made a large national splash other than as Anita Baker's backing singers, but for those who found "No Place To Go" or their other music, there was a real treat.

    Times haven't changed so much since 1989, and the song still resonates today. Whether you remember it or are hearing it for the first time, take a listen to the beautiful "No Place to Go."
