Soulful singer/songwriter and New Orleans native, Ledisi, is a celebrated R&B recording artist who caught the attention of Verve Music Group in 2007, while recording her third album, Lost & Found. The album earned her two Grammy award nominations, including “Best New Artist” in 2008. The songstress released her latest album, Let Love Rule, a compilation of soul-stirring, genre blended music fused together both contemporary and traditional R&B last year.
About Eric Benet
From barefoot dreadlocked troubadour to suave standard-bearer for contemporary R&B. Eric Benét may have changed his look, but one thing has remained consistent: his dedication to crafting authentic music that engages the soul. His almost 25 years of being in the industry include some dabbling in acting (For Your Love TV series, Glitter, and Half & Half) and eight albums.
About Lalah Hathaway
Born to Donny Hathaway, one of the most influential soul artists, and Eulaulah Hathaway, an accomplished musician in her own right, the Chicago native first put pen to paper, “with the music,” as a 10th grader. Later, as a student at Berklee College of Music, she recorded her self-titled debut in 1990, which spawned the hits “Baby Don’t Cry,” “Heaven Only Knows” and “I’m Coming Back.” Decades later, the singer continues to push the envelope through illustrious collaborations and disrupting the norm with her music creation. She released her latest project, Honestly, last November.
About Will Downing
Downing has undoubtedly put in his time! Before signing with Island Records in the ’80s, he received his first national exposure as a much sought-after backing vocalist. He recorded two albums with modest success, domestically, before his self-titled Will Downing release spawned a major hit in the U.K. with a Top Ten charting cover of “A Love Supreme” catapulting the album to platinum sales there. Downing’s big stateside breakout album was his 1991 A Dream Fulfilled which showcased his distinctive baritone vocals. He has continued to feed his fan base a constant flow of great new music with his latest being the 2017 Soul Survivor.
