Only the Beginning

In 2000, New Orleans-born songstress Ledisi released her debut album, Soulsinger: The Revival, under her own imprint, LeSun Records. The album produced four singles, but the track, "Take Time," was a local hit on Bay Area radio thanks to the love shown from Ledisi's second home of Oakland, California.
