Ledisi Young is an industry veteran with the appeal of an up-and-coming star.
The jazzed-up soul singer earned a cult following in the late 1990s with the Bay Area band Anibade. As a solo artist, she’s topped Billboard’s R&B Albums chart and crossed over into the Billboard Top 200.
Young also starred as Mahalia Jackson in the Martin Luther King Jr. biopic “Selma.” She kicks off “The Intimate Truth Tour,” with Raheem DeVaughn and Leela James, Friday, Feb. 27, in Los Angeles. The tour stops in Fresno Saturday, Feb. 28, at the Tower Theatre.
