Leela James burst onto the scene with her 2006 debut album A Change is Gonna Come, introducing audiences to her considerable vocal chops and garnering nominations for Outstanding New Artist at the NAACP Image Awards and Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist of 2008 at the Soul Train Music Awards. She has gone on to record three subsequent albums including My Soul, which reached #7 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop Albums Chart and #37 on the Billboard 200 chart, and earned acclaim from critics for her songwriting skills.
Nicknamed Baby Etta as a little girl, James paid homage to her idol in 2012 by recording her album Loving You More…In the Spirit of Etta James. The acclaimed recording artist appreciates the eternal qualities of an undeniable star — raw talent, musical substance and an authentic voice that’s timeless — all of which are embodied on Leela James’ upcoming fourth studio album, to be released in 2014, and new single “Say That,” a sultry duet with Anthony Hamilton.
