In the weeks following the release of ‘Black Messiah,’ it wasn’t surprising for fans to think D’Angelo could possibly spend the next few years in recluse before following up this album with another (which is fine considering ‘Black Messiah’ is superb). However, that’s not the case. Before rocking Harlem, N.Y.’s Apollo Theater next month, D’Angelo and the Vanguard will play ‘Saturday Night Live’ on Jan. 31.
This comes a few months after Prince, who’s known as one of D’Angelo’s biggest inspirations, performed a three-song medley on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ After he takes the stage there and at the Apollo, the crooner will embark on the month-long Second Coming tour over in Europe.
The Jan. 31 episode of ‘SNL’ will be hosted by actor J.K. Simmons, who came into recent prominence with his Golden Globe Award-winning performance in ‘Whiplash.’ Simmons is welcomed, but even he must know that D’Angelo is going to make more headlines the following Sunday morning.

Tracy Morgan, who was badly injured in a collision June 7, has been upgraded from critical to fair condition, his publicist said.
“Happy to pass along that Tracy has been upgraded to fair condition, which is a great improvement,” publicist Lewis Kay said. “His personality is certainly starting to come back as well.”
Tracy Morgan is in critical condition after a six-vehicle accident in New Jersey early Saturday, authorities said.
The former “Saturday Night Live” cast member and “30 Rock” star was riding in a limo bus when the accident occurred in Mercer County, said Sgt. Gregory Williams of the New Jersey State Police.
The limo bus overturned at the New Jersey Turnpike in Robbinsville, he said.
“The limo bus is the only vehicle that overturned,” Williams said. “Looks like one of the tractor-trailers may have rear-ended that limo bus, but that’s preliminary at this time.”
Williams said he does not believe alcohol played a role in the accident, but that is under investigation.
In addition to the bus, the wreck involved two tractor-trailers and an SUV, he said.
One person was killed and seven others hospitalized with injuries, authorities said. The fatality may have been another passenger in the limo bus, Williams said.
Peter Haigney, a spokesman for the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, said four patients are being treated there.
Three are in critical condition and one is in fair condition, he said.
