Ledisi cooks up a tribute to music icon: Nina Simone.
R&B recording artist Ledisi has been hard-at-work bringing the life story of legendary gospel singer Mahalia Jackson to screens in the latest biopic, ‘Remember Me: The Mahalia Jackson Story‘.
As fans prepare themselves for that, it’s been revealed she is also cooking up a tribute to another music icon: Nina Simone. ‘Feeling Good,’ one of my favorite’s by Simone, is one of many of the late legend’s hits that have been revamped by Ledisi for the forthcoming album, ‘Ledisi Sings Nina’ (slated for a July 23 release).
Kicking off October 13 in Austin, Texas, ‘The Wild Card Tour’ will take her to most corners of the country as it touches down in major cities like Cincinnati, Houston, Charlotte, Atlanta, New Orleans, and more before coming to a close in Durham on November 18.
