Ledisi’s giving audiences a special gift this December when she headlines a national tour featuring songs from both her new holiday album  It’s Christmas and selections from her major label debut album Lost & Found (both on Verve). The Oakland-native and two-time 2008 GRAMMY nominee is known for giving electrifying live performances, described as a “religious experience” by Billboard.com (2.15.08). The Boston Globe said of her Newport Jazz Fest performance “If there had been a roof at the park, the singer would have torn it off the sucker…she jokingly threatened to stop her set and go home if the people in the audience didn’t stand up and shake their booties. They obliged” (8.11.08).


‘It’s Christmas’ Tour Dates:
December 4 – Carolina Theater – Durham, NC


December 5 – Variety Playhouse – Atlanta, GA

December 7 – Dillard University – New Orleans, LA

December 10 – El Rey – Los Angeles, CA
December 11-14 – Yoshi’s – San Francisco, CA


December 16 – Dedry Experience – Chicago, IL

December 18 – Fillmore – Detroit, MI

December 19 – BB King’s – New York, NY

December 20 – Keswick Theatre – Philadelphia, PA

December 22-23 – Rams Head – Annapolis, MD


Ledisi is sure to light up the stage with her blend of R&B, soul, and gospel while slow burners like “This Christmas (Could Be The One)” create an elegant and tender holiday moment also essential to the season. Though it bears a similar name to the Donny Hathaway classic, “This Christmas (Could Be The One)” is one of the four original songs co-written by Ledisi for her new holiday album.
