LEELA JAMES @ Amaturo Theater at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts
Jul 7 @ 8:00 pm

For over a decade, acclaimed singer-songwriter, Leela James has remained a consistent figure in R&B with a discography of quality soul music that constantly reminds of what it is to be human – to love, to regret and to dream. With a natural ability to communicate a mixture of emotions with the husky and bluesy tone of her voice and was nicknamed “Baby Etta,” after Etta James, growing up as a child in Los Angeles. Her other musical influences range from soul to funk, and jazz, including legends like Chaka Khan and Al Green.

Leela’s successful career first began when she burst onto the scene in 2006 with her debut album, “A Change is Gonna Come”. She has since topped Billboard charts, had her music featured on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” and starred on TV One’s “ R&B Divas: Los Angeles.” She has collaborated with the best producers, toured alongside Maxwell and Ledisi, and earned countless spots on the Billboard charts, including a #1 spot on the Urban Adult Contemporary charts with the hit single, “Don’t Want You Back,” from her latest album “Did It For Love.” Her classic albums have also earned nominations for Outstanding New Artist at the NAACP Image Awards, and Best R&B/Soul or Rap New Artist at the 2008 Soul Train Music Awards.

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score,  FOOTLOOSE is the ultimate 80’s dance musical with a message!
