Movie buffs might recognize Ledisi from the Oscar-winning film “Selma” in which she played gospel singer Mahalia Jackson.

Currently, Ledisi pays tribute to another legend: Nina Simone.
The Oakland-raised performer brings her “Ledisi Sings Nina” tour to St. Petersburg where she last played in February of 2020—the same year she won her first Grammy (Best Traditional R&B Performance” for the song “Anything for You”).

FYI, the “Meet and Greet” VIP package requires proof of vaccination, regular seating does not.
