Porter’s breakout Blue Note debut “Liquid Spirit” was released in 2013 and became a global sensation, selling more than a million albums and winning the GRAMMY for Best Jazz Vocal Album, with NPR and Esquire declaring him “America’s Next Great Jazz Singer.” Porter has since released the GRAMMY-winning album “Take Me to the Alley” (2016), a GRAMMY-nominated tribute to his lifelong idol “Nat King Cole & Me” (2017) featuring an orchestra arranged and conducted by Vince Mendoza, and the concert film “One Night Only: Live At The Royal Albert Hall” (2018). He is the host of the new podcast “The Hang.”Ledisi is a 12-time GRAMMY nominated vocalist who has wowed fans ever since she came onto the Bay area music scene. Over the past 20 years she has earned a place in the pantheon of the best soul singers of her generation. She has released nine studio albums, headlined national sold-out tours and performed alongside Richie Sambora, Dave Matthews, Kelly Clarkson, Jill Scott, Maxwell, and Herbie Hancock. Ledisi landed a role in the Oscar-nominated movie Selma portraying Mahalia Jackson, and she had a notable performance in Gabourey Sidibe’s Shatterbox Anthology film, “The Tale Of Four.” In 2017, Ledisi released her ninth studio album, “Let Love Rule,” which was nominated for three GRAMMY Awards and features John Legend, Kirk Franklin, and B.J. The Chicago Kid among others. Most recently she recorded a duet with the late Miles Davis on his newly released lost album “Rubberband.” Ledisi is not only a singer and actress, she’s an author, playwright, film producer, and now the CEO of her own record label Listen Back Entertainment from which she will launch several projects in the near future.Download photos from Feb. 6 Opening Night of Tour Here.Download a press photo of Gregory Porter.Download a press photo of Ledisi.The Duke Energy Center for the Arts – Mahaffey Theater
