Wonder Ballroom
128 NE Russell St.
 
[ACOUSTIC SOUL] Selah Sue, a blond, periwinkle-eyed songstress from Belgium, not only cites Erykah Badu as her main influence, but regularly covers Badu’s work. These aren’t cutesy indie-fied versions, either: She gives them all the soul she’s got, making Badu’s wandering vocal style her own, though with a little less righteousness. On her 2011 debut, production values are high, and she possesses little of her icon’s intriguing weirdness, but “Raggamuffin” is a neo-soul hit to be sure, while “Please,” her duet with Cee-Lo Green, might foretell something of her future: Badu jumpstarted her career in 1998 by singing alongside Cee-Lo on Outkast’s “Liberation.”
