Celebrating 25 Years Of Lalah Hathaway


Sunday, November 8

Tonight we'll hear new music from R&B singer Lalah Hathaway.  She’s celebrating 25 years as a recording artist.  Her new album Lalah Hathaway Live was recorded at the Troubador in Los Angeles earlier this year in front of a celebrity crowd including Patti Labelle, Anita Baker, Erica Campbell and Kenny Lattimore.  The two-time Grammy winner performed on the same stage that her father, the late Donny Hathaway, recorded his live album in 1972. 

In a recent interview on eurweb.com, Lalah Hathaway says “ I bridged a gap between what is old and what is new. By old, I mean historic, legendary and legacy music. At a point, it conveys the history of Blacks in America – old soul, R&B, gospel, the blues – I am bridging those genres to what’s going on now."
