Ledisi may have ended her 12-time GRAMMY losing streak in March when she took home her first golden gramophone for work found aboard her latest studio album, 2020’s ‘Wild Card,’ but the legendary diva’s barely had time to soak in the win.
Just a month later, she released her first live album – the critically acclaimed ‘Live at the Troubadour’ – amid reports she was already hard-at-work bringing the life story of Queen of Gospel Mahalia Jackson to screens via a recently announced biopic.
As fans readied themselves for that, it was revealed Leddy was also cooking up a tribute to another music icon: Nina Simone.
‘Feeling Good,’ one of Simone’s most revered classics, 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).
The song may even get the live treatment aboard the 49-year-old’s forthcoming ‘Wild Card Tour,’ which kicks off in Austin on October 13.
