My love affair with LEDISI

I am in love with a WOMAN, and her name is Ledisi...





The love affair started a little over a year ago when a dear friend let me listen to a lovely song titled "Kitchen". After hearing this woman with a BEAST of a voice, my heart percolated a bit...who the HELL was this, and why the hell haven't I heard of her before? From that point on, I knew I needed her in my life :)

After viewing YouTube after YouTube clip of this beautiful woman killing the tracks with her own material, conjuring the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Chaka Khan, Donny Hathaway, and even having the nerve to join up with one of my faves Rahsaan Patterson to kill a Rufus song while just playing around, I was hooked.

Acquiring her sophomore album "Lost and Found" intensified my attraction.



While somewhat disappointed at how produced her sound was on this album, her writing and delivery sold it for me. Baby, when I heard "In the Morning" for the first time, I thought she was reading my thoughts! Man, I wish I had somebody in the morning like that! If you don't have it in your library, do yourself a favor and buy 3 copies...one for you, and two for whomever will beat you silly for not sharing such a wonderful artist with them :)

I didn't publically pronounce my love for Ledisi until December 10, 2008, the night I saw her LIVE and in living color. Ledisi graced my fair city at the El Rey Theatre, a perfectly intimate venue for such a grand event. After waiting for nearly 2 HOURS to get in and connecting with my crew of Ledisi fans for the night, we prepared ourselves. In a standing room only crowd, we were FRONT and CENTER. I don't think I was ready...



She walked up on that stage...and let us HAVE IT....do you hear me?!! KILLED IT. Virtually 90 minutes straight. She gave us old skool Ledisi (before folks knew how off the hook she was). She gave us "Lost and Found". And she even treated us to her new Christmas album "Its Christmas". I just couldn't get over how RIDICULOUS the entire production was...she was off the chain...her band was amazing (and CUTE...damn!), and her backup singers were DEADLY (I'm talking like...ummm where is YOUR record deal?). As she aptly put it she gave us "some of that booty", "let mama tell ya songs", and "gave us church"! And to top it all, she was funny as hell! Crackin' jokes on folks, giving us sage advice, even letting us in the crowd get our sing on! I can't tell you how many times I just had to stop and shake my head like "wow...really? Are you serious? All of this?". Get into a clip:



Needless to say since the concert I've been rocking both "Lost and Found" and "Its Christmas", as well as digging up her older material. I'm in love with a WOMAN, and her name is Ledisi! If I weren't a tried and true homo I might of had to stop on by TIffany for a ring! But in all seriousness, Ledisi is an amazing artist and I just had to share my "love affair" with her to blogopia.

If you're into REAL VOCALISTS, get some LEDISI in your life!

You have NO IDEA how much I loved this!! Not just because I love YOU but because I love Ledisi too!!! She IS that TRUTH!!!! I just finished listening to her track "In the Morning" and you KNOW that's right!!! Glad you enjoyed the concert! I'm pissed I missed her at Yoshi's and I hope I see her soon!!!

Yes, Ledisi is ALL OF THE BIZNESS AND THEN SOME!!!! I know that that concert had to be magical... The El Rey? Isn't that the place that Chris Brown sang at in This Christmas? Nice venue.

I had the pleasure to see her four years ago when I came back to the states after living in Germany. I got tickets to see Rahsaan Patterson at the Vault 360 in Long Beach. The tickets were $25 and the show was billed as "Rahsaan Patterson and Friends." Little did I know that his friends were going to be Ledisi, Lalah Hathaway and Rachelle Ferrell!!!!

They stayed the entire show (which ended up being over four hours long) and sang their own material as well as acted as extra backup singers. Ledisi, quite unknown at the time, let us know that her mother was one of the Mary Jane Girls and laid us out with her solo material ("Get Outta My Kitchen"). I was soooooo impressed by her that I had to scour the streets the next day to find her first cd... I have been hooked ever since!!!

Next time you are in town, we have to listen to her... I have plenty of tracks that she has done that are not on her cds!!!!
