Leela James Talks With GFM on Her Etta James Tribute Album, Her Influence in Music and Thoughts to the Current State of R&BTuesday, June 12th, 2012
From the church stomping R&B of Ray Charles to the deep down Delta blues of B.B. King, Leela James has performed with some of the best in music. Now with a new album on Shanachie Entertainment entitled “Loving You More…In the Spirit of Etta James” Leela will be giving tribute to a legend who’s known not just for classic songs like “At Last”, “Something’s Got a Hold of Me” and “Sunday Kind of Love” but for her raw “heart and soul” vocals in rock, soul, jazz and R&B. In our GFM interview with Leela we talked about the inspiration behind the album, the song she would choose for an Etta duet and her thoughts to the current state of R&B.
