Ledisi Returns!!!!


Ledisi's new cd (Lost & Found) comes out August 28, 2007. I have been waiting and waiting. I love her! The 1st time I saw her perform was on New Years Eve several years ago. She was the opening act for Rachelle Ferrell. Man you should have seen the crowd rushing to the table in the lobby after the show was over, hoping that she had a cd out there for sale. Unfortunately, she only had flyers at the time and you could only purchase her cd from her website. That night I got home and ordered it right away. I was not disappointed by her New Years Eve performance and when the CD arrived I was even more elated by what I soon heard.

Enjoy this clip of her from PBS's tribute to Ella Fitzgerald. I love good music!! In my next life I'm going to be a singer I just know it. I guess I'll have to start practicing remembering all the words to songs instead of mumbling through those I don't know. LOL

I know, right!!! Ledisi is truly the stuff!!!!

I got a chance to see her a couple of years back in Long Beach, Ca at The Vault. Rahsaan Patterson was doing a show called "Rahsaan Patterson and Friends". His "Friends" were Rachelle Ferrell, Lalah Hathaway and Ms. Ledisi herself! For a mere $25 I was able to enjoy the four of them on stage for almost 4 hours singing their songs and adlibbing the night away! It was truly one of the best concert experiences I have ever had.

Ledisi is no joke and I am waiting for her new cd as well.

I have been following her since I picked up her first independent CD in NYC. What an incredible singer. I can't wait to download this album.
