Ledisi at Lantarenvenster <sup></sup>

Ledisi at Lantarenvenster

Ledisi is what you call a powerhouse of a singer. She was nominated no less than thirteen times for a Grammy Award and in 2021 she won it for the hit 'Anything For You'. Over the past twenty years she has earned her place in the pantheon of the best soul singers of her time. She has a fan base worldwide.

The R&B singer was born in New Orleans where she grew up among a musical family. Ledisi's mother sang Rhythm & Blues and Ledisi also started singing in that style from the age of 8, but with a heavy dose of jazz.

Ledisi's music is a combination of jazz, blues, soul, funk, gospel and hip hop with profound lyrics about love. Her sound is powerful and fragile at the same time and her range is enormous. The debut album Soulsinger arrived in 2000 as a bomb. Ledisi is a favorite of the Obamas and has performed at the White House no fewer than nine times. She has collaborated with artists such as Nas, Macy Gray, Jill Scott, Herbie Hancock, Robert Glasper and Patti Austin.
