Angelique Kidjo on a mission

February 4th, 2014
10:43 AM ET

Grammy-winning singer Angelique Kidjo is on a mission.

“African women have to be seen through the true lenses of it,” she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday. “The false lens is always showing the women being abused, being in refugee camp, and walking around with their breasts naked looking like zombies that have no brain.”

“I’m not a cliché. I’m a human being. I have a brain; I can use it. I have a mouth; I can speak for myself. And that’s what I want people to hear – the beauty, that resilience through the voice.”

Kidjo, from the West African nation of Benin, has just released a bold new album, Eve, and has written a revealing autobiography.

On the eve of a new tour around the United States and the world, Kidjo sat down with Amanpour in New York.
