Ledisi and Mona Austin

*Gospel audiences are embracing R&B songstress Ledisi as if she’s one of their own.

The 2-time Grammy nominee was the only non-gospel act on the ticket at the recent tribute to the late Bishop Walter Hawkins and has performed on Celebration of Gospel, at Bishop T.D. Jakes’ Potter’s House and the Essence Music Festival Gospel Salute.

She admits she enjoys all the love, but has no plans of crossing over or doing a gospel album.

“I just love music and am enjoying the fact that people are accepting me in any genre,” she said after recording a duet with Dr. Bobby Jones for the next season of BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel.

Ledisi also performed the Richard Smallwood classic “Center of My Joy” solo. The next season of Bobby Jones Gospel is scheduled to premiere on October 3.
