R&B superstar Ledisi has a lot to be excited about as she gears up for the release of her new studio album Let Love Rule, which hits September 22. “HIGH,” the lead single off the album, has aggressively climbed up the UAC and Billboard charts (#14 & #13 respectively). To add to the excitement, Ledisi’s new video for “HIGH” has just released. Directed by Noble Jones, the video features a radiant Ledisi signing her cares away about life and love. Let Love Rule is currently available for pre-order.
To keep the party going, fans can also see Ledisi sing “HIGH” for the first time as part of the star-studded lineup of performers that helped to celebrate extraordinary Black women and Black love at the “BLACK GIRLS ROCK!™” 2017 Awards hosted by Taraji P. Henson. The broadcast will premiere on Tonight, August 22, 2017 at 8:00 P.M. ET/PT on BET.
Fans can catch more Ledisi as she joins a line-up of hundreds of artists that already include Ed Sheeran, who will play in Washington D.C., for the Amnesty International and Sofar Sounds’ Refugee Solidarity Concerts on September 20. The shows are in support of Amnesty International’s I Welcome refugee campaign, which mobilizes public pressure on governments to welcome refugees. Amnesty International’s research shows that 80% of people around the world are open to welcoming refugees, yet governments are failing to do their part. The full list is available on sofarsounds.com/giveahome, where fans have until September 10 to apply to win tickets for the shows taking place in their city.
