Ledisi, the eight-time Grammy nominated rhythm & blues vocal powerhouse, brings “The Truth Tour” to Upper Darby’s Tower Theatre on Thursday, May 1. The tour—which supports her new album, “The Truth” —showcases the New Orleans native’s recent journey of self-discovery and transformation.

The Verve Music artist, born Ledisi Anibade Young, is celebrating her first musical release in three years. Her last album, 2011's "Pieces of Me," reached number 8 on the Billboard 200 and earned the artist a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album.

Ledisi describes the new album as "vibrant, sensual, and fun" and "(her) favorite album ever." The collection's upbeat and liberating lead single "I Blame You" remains in the Top 5 on Billboard's Adult R&B Songs chart after an incredible 29 weeks.

Accompanying Ledisi on "The Truth Tour" is equally revered jazz/hip hop band Robert Glasper Experiment. The Grammy Award-winning group is touring in support of its latest project, "Black Radio 2".
