30 Seconds With Ledisi

Rocks Off blushed and fumbled awkwardly while asking rising R&B songstress Ledisi if she'd mind answering a few questions to see what we could learn about her in 30 seconds.

Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?

Ledisi: Ha ha! I'm not answering this one.

RO: What is the best lyric in the world?

L: "Yesterday" by the Beatles. "Yesterday all my troubles seem so far away, now it looks as though they're here to stay. Oh I believe in yesterday."

RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you onstage. What do you do?

L: Nothing. Someone else would deal with it!

RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what would be the ultimate gig to play?

L: Carnegie Hall in NYC.

RO: What would you buy with a million dollars?

L: I'd buy a home on nice land furnish it and give it to my mom.

RO: What would you buy with your last dollar?

L: I'd give it to someone who needed it more than me.

RO: If you could canonize another musician, who would it be and of what would they be the patron saint?

L: I like being me. I don't want to be anyone else (laughing).

RO: What will be written on the plaque beneath the giant statute future generations erect in your honor?

L: She was an incredible person and an electrifying performer.

Ledisi performs tonight, Thursday, November 3 at House of Blues. Her album Pieces of Me is now available.
