Overview

Over the past four decades ESSENCE introduced our readers to inspirational voices such as Susan L. Taylor (In the Spirit; Lessons in Living; All About Love); and New York Times Best-Sellers Iyanla Vanzant ("In the Meantime," and "One Day My Soul Just Opened Up"), Juanita Bynum ("Matters of the Heart"), and Bishop T.D. Jakes ("Before You Do" and "Reposition Yourself"). Now, ESSENCE is pleased to share an incredible new uplifting and empowering voice with its 7.5 million readers and book lovers everywhere. In the tradition of Iyanla Vanzant's blockbuster 1993 book Acts of Faith: Daily Meditations for People of Color, ESSENCE is pleased to collaborate with powerhouse musician Ledisi for a soulful and enlightening collection of the singer's inspiring meditations, quotes, and anecdotes charting her astonishing transformation as a woman and an artist.

Ledisi, who has been described as having a mix of Tina Turner's energy, Nina Simone's brilliance, and Ella Fitzgerald's range, is a multiple Grammy nominee who has quickly connected with ESSENCE readers because of her authenticity and tenacity to strive for success on her own terms.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In Yoruba, the name of singer, songwriter, and actress Ledisi means "to bring forth" or "to come here." Both that promise and that invitation permeate this instructive new book of meditations, quotes, and anecdotes about her life as a performer and as a woman. Curated by ESSENCE magazine, this book arrives shortly before her upcoming B.G.T.Y. national tour, which begins on June 24th.

    Embracing Self Efficacy

    I bought this book honestly because I am an HUGE fan of Ledisi and if you have ever seen one of her shows, she does nothing but give out advice and words of inspiration which is why I have watched her illuminate a room 3 times. This book reflects on what has brought her to the understanding that she shares with others. The chapter on Forgiveness was what I was most touched by and it shares a story about Ledisi and her struggle to except the things she cant change. She brings forth a shot of honesty and allows people to feel her presence the same way they do her songs. The book also includes workbook space where you are encouraged to fill in the blanks that ask questions on LOVE, honesty, forgiveness, and self-worth. I love this book because when Im struggling with one of the topics I can read and know that I am not the only person who is riding the same roller coaster through life and feeling the rough patches that come along.

    I learned a lot about Ledisi, I liked that she wasn't scared to express her emotions, i could tell she was being honest when sharing certain experiences and i respect her for that.

    I highly recommend this one.

    Ledisi's journey is very inspiring. She manages to give the readers an inside view of life as an artist in the often throatcut business of the entertainment industry. I'm glad she found her peace, love and power in her journey and becoming better than alright.
