Ledisi To Perform Louis Jordan Medley On "GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends"

R&B/ jazz singer Ledisi performs a playful mix of genres during her Louis Jordan medley for the Recording Academy's 2018 Special Merit Awards recipient tribute concert airing on PBS Oct. 5.

A bandleader who played a swinging alto sax, Louis Jordan sang, composed and most of all entertained audiences of every background. Born in 1908 in Arkansas, his pioneering blend of styles produced a string of hits during the1930s-50s that broadened musical tastes and led into the roots of rock. A posthumous recipient of the Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award, Jordan will be honored by 12-time GRAMMY nominee Ledisi, who will perform a medley of "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie" and "Let The Good Times Roll" on the upcoming third annual "GRAMMY Salute To Music Legends."
