Undeterred by the pandemic, she launched her own label, Listen Back Entertainment, and unveiled "The Wildcard" LP, featuring the #1 Grammy Award-winning hit “Anything For You,” which secured her win in the “Best Traditional R&B Performance” category. The album's success catapulted Ledisi into sold-out shows nationwide.
A vocal powerhouse, Ledisi's venture into jazz with "Ledisi Sings Nina" garnered acclaim, with The New York Times hailing her bravura self-assurance and included a sold-out show at the prestigious Carnegie Hall. With 14 Grammy nominations, 3 Soul Train Music Awards, and 19 NAACP Image Award Nominations, Ledisi's impact spans music, film, and television.
Beyond the stage, she's a vocal advocate as a Trustee of the Recording Academy, Los Angeles Chapter, and an Honorary Member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.
A seasoned presence in film and television, Ledisi made her mark with roles in George Clooney's "Leatherheads," the Oscar-nominated "Selma," and the impactful "The Tale Of Four." Transitioning to television, she portrayed Patti LaBelle on BET's American Soul and shone in FX's "POSE" and "Twice Bitten" on BET Plus. In 2022, she wowed fans as Mahalia Jackson in "Remember Me" and embodied the essence of Gladys Knight in the biopic "Spinning Gold.”
An author and entrepreneur, Ledisi is a creative force redefining the entertainment landscape. As she prepares to launch more groundbreaking projects, Ledisi, a black woman, wife, bonus mom, daughter, sister, storyteller, advocate, and businesswoman, owns her lane like never before. It's not just music; it's a journey, and Ledisi is at the helm of this exciting new chapter!
