She came onto the stage around 20.25 and the 1st song she sang was Bravo (from her last album, Pieces Of Me). We were impressed by her voice and above all, the fact that she can hit high notes very easily. Then, she went on with Higher Than This (from the Turn Me Loose album) and asked us to sing with her, what we did.
You could tell she was having fun on stage. She was joking with her band and we all laughed. She also made funny faces while she was singing.
After that, she sang Think Of You, from her 3rd album, Lost And Found and then, she did an extended version of Knockin' (on the Turn Me Loose album) and she added some jazz notes at the end of the song.
She was impressed by the number of people who were in that hall concert. The Nouveau Casino is a pretty small hall concert but it was full and we were having a good time.
Then, she told us she was going to sing a song from her last album, and went on with Hate Me. Once again, she asked us to sing with her, and when she saw we didn't know the lyrics, she made the big eyes. It was very funny.
She afterwards sang Joy, a song from the Lost And Found album and she also sang a song from her 1st album, Soul Singer, which was released in 2000. We all danced to the song and it was awesome.
She then introduced to her band, and each member showed us what his/her skills. Ledisi's backing singers had a lot of success but so did every member (I was personally impressed by the drummer).
Ledisi went on singing 2 songs from Pieces Of Me, which were I Gotta Get To You and the hit single Pieces Of Me.
Before she started to sing Alright, the 1st song from her 3rd album, Lost And Found, she explained to us that she was going to give up the music. So she called her mom and told her that she was going to quit. The latter said that she didn't want her to quit, and gave her an advice. Ledisi thought it was a great one and thus, she wrote Alright and also made a contract with Verve Records.
Before she left the stage, she thanked us and gave us some advice. She also said that it started with 2 people, then, 50, afterwards 100, and now, her concerts are sold out.
She came back for an encore and she sang Shut Up.
When she went backstage, her band went to see us and we could talk to them (they were a few people left in the hall concert). I was really happy to be able to talk to them. They're really amazing and they did an awesome job. They thanked us and were glad we spent a really good time.
They also told us that Ledisi may come back in Paris in January. I'll try to go back because she's really great! She filled the room with joy and laughter :-D
Thanks for reading :-)
