If you have ever witnessed Grammy-nominated singer Ledisi in concert, you already know the girl has some pipes! Whether she is scatting her way thru an old jazz standard or tantalizing you with an up-tempo or bringing the house down with a soul-stirring ballad, she is definitely one of the best singers in music today. But hidden behind all of those runs and riffs are life lessons and anecdotes of overcoming obstacles and accepting whatever life may bring!

Ledisi recently decided to take those pearls of wisdom and package them all in a book entitled “Better than Alright.” Presented by ESSENCE, Ledisi’s writings feature an array of quotes, lyrics and stories that she has collected over the years. From acceptance to recognizing her self-worth and taking control of her destiny, this book is sure to inspire anyone looking to blaze his or her own trail. It also features personal photos of her journey from underground soul artist to internationally known superstar.
