Ledisi Wins The “Soul Train Certified Award” + Drops “Add To Me” Video
Congratulations to R&B sensation Ledisi on winning the “Soul Train Certified Award.” Ledisi also gave an amazing performance at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas during the ceremony, partnering with Kirk Franklin for a rendition of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes’ “Wake Up” that also featured Le’Andria Johnson, Daniel Caesar, and MAJOR. Fittingly, Ledisi is currently co-headlining “The Rebel, The Soul & The Tour” with Franklin, garnering rave reviews.
It’s been an eventful month for Ledisi, who also just garnered three NAACP Award nominations in the “Outstanding Female Artist,” “Outstanding Music Video/Visual Album,” and “Outstanding Song – Traditional” categories, alongside such artists as Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.
Ledisi’s new video “Add To Me,” set in a speakeasy, has Ledisi’s love interest, played by Timon Kyle Durrett (Queen Sugar), trying to get her attention after meeting at a civil rights rally. Having a cinematic vibe, Ledisi was adamant about bringing back the imagery of nostalgic R&B videos originally pioneered by the likes of Michael Jackson and Madonna. The video was directed by longtime collaborator Ron T. Young, who also co-wrote the video concept with the soul singer.
Ledisi’s ninth studio album Let Love Rule, which features John Legend, Kirk Franklin, and B.J. The Chicago Kid is available now on Verve Records.
