As a New Orleans native, it was hard for Ledisi not to live and breathe the jazz sound she is now so wildly known for. Besides her hometown’s musical roots at her disposal, her mother sang in a Louisiana R&B band and her stepfather was a drummer in the New Orleans area.
We caught up with the legendary crooner before her intimate performance in front of her most beloved fans. She shared how her sound developed at an early age, how she was almost a classical singer, and her response to the Ledisi haters. Watch the video above.
Don’t forget to catch the full performance Saturday, November 29 when HelloBeautiful’s InterludesLIVE airs on TVOne at 10pm.
