Over the past 13 years, New Orleans native Ledisi (Anibade Young) has recorded six albums, gained eight Grammy nominations including a nod for “Best New Artist” in 2008, performed six times at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama, and earned a place in the pantheon of the best soul singers of her generation.
You can tell when a woman has finally come into her own. It’s in the swivel of her hips, the growl in her voice and the joy that brightens her face when she smiles. A woman filled with confidence is a force to be reckoned with. For singer songwriter Ledisi, that exuberance rings through on every track of her latest release, The Truth, and soon to be released EP The Intimate Truth.
Ledisi will be also be playing the legendary Mahalia Jackson in the upcoming Paramount movie Selma, the story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s historic struggle to secure voting rights for all people – and is one of the most anticipated movies for the holiday season.
