When my time ends, I want people to say, 'Man her music made me smile; it just enlightened my life; it inspired me; it made me feel good every time.'

I love opera so much. I would never go back to doing it, but I love to listen – I'm grateful for it.
Ledisi
I know who I am and I've always been comfortable in my own skin.

Ledisi
