Grammy nominated singer and Verve Records artist Ledisi has announced the release of her new project The Intimate Truth, which is set to hit stores on January 20. This seven song EP will feature acoustic performances from her latest full-length album The Truth (March 2014).
Ledisi is also beaming from her recent Grammy nomination for new single “Like This” in the Best R&B Performance category. Fans can view the 57th annual Grammy Awards on CBS on February 8th at 8pm ET.
Furthermore, Ledisi will be hitting the road again for “The Intimate Truth Tour”. The 20+city tour will kick off in Los Angeles, February 27 at Club Nokia. The tour will cut across the U.S hitting major markets including Houston (Bayou Music Center), Chicago (Portage Theatre), Cleveland (HOB), St. Louis (The Pageant), Memphis (Orpheum Theatre), Boston (Wilbur Theatre), Newark (NJPAC) and will conclude in Atlanta on March 29 at Symphony Hall. Opening up for Ledisi will be Raheem DeVaughn and Leela James. Check your local markets for more information on purchasing tickets.
To add to her excitement, Ledisi will be playing the legendary Mahalia Jackson in the upcoming Paramount movie Selma, which is one of the most anticipated movies for the holiday season. Selma is the story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s historic struggle to secure voting rights for all people – a dangerous and terrifying campaign that culminated with the epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, and led to President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The film also stars Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, Cuba Gooding Jr., Common, Dylan Baker and more.
