SoulCuts Advent Calendar – Day 3 – Ledisi – Be There For Christmas

3 12 2010

We’re in love with Ledisi over at SoulCuts. We’ve been hooked ever since we first heard her Soulsinger album. Our infatuation was further confirmed at the Subterranea nearly ten years ago where she tore up the stage and made the usually reserved London crowd shake it like we were actually having fun.

A couple of years back, Ledisi unleashed her fabulous Christmas album, the imaginatively titled It’s Christmas, to rapturous applause. It’s another of those collections that seems to grow in stature which each year that passes. We’ve plumped for the energetic, Be There For Christmas. This cut is rapidly approaching classic status in our house. Mrs SoulCuts declares it to be one of her favourites, and she’s a lady that loves herself some Christmas music!

Be There For Christmas is a joyous R&B romp that’ll be sure to put you in the Christmas mood as the decorations go up this weekend. And don’t forget to get yourself a copy of the album. You know It’s Christmas when you put that CD on! Ho! Ho! Ho!

Pick up a copy of It’s Christmas at Amazon.

And here’s the tune that gave me the goosebumps at that gig all those years back, the immaculate Free Again!
