Key biography facts
The first Ledisi's steps in the musical path and first-ever revealing her incredible deep jazz voice to the general public began with her participation in the band called Anibade in 1995. Due to the fact band's attempts to sign a contract with a recording studio failed, they created their own label LeSun Records with Sundra Manning. Eventually, by dint of band's common efforts, their first full-fledged LP was issued under the title 'Take Time'. By the way, the album has gained wide success and given a big opportunity to solo endeavor for the singer. Ledisi then was on the right path, cause in subsequent years she gained even more achievements. For all her activities Ledisi had released eight studio albums, received twenty Grammy nominations, and also got world recognition as a talented soul singer. In particular, her second studio album, Feeling Orange but Sometimes Blue, won the 2002 "Outstanding Jazz Album" nomination at the California Music Awards. Another no less important event in the singer's music career was in 2007, along with the release of her next music opus - Lost & Found, which in turn brought the singer two Grammy nominations and a large number of sales of the album over 200,000 copies. However, to date, her most profitable studio record is Pieces of Me (2011). Moreover, Ledisi always had another passion except for music, she also starred in several films and presented herself as an actress. In particular, she played in the movie Selma (as Mahalia Jackson) in 2014. At this moment, Ledisi retains the reputation of a charismatic prolific soul singer, for whom the quality of music is primarily more important than social status.
