A vocalist to watch! Independent Weekly

Adia Ledbetter has a voice full of personality and expression that surprises. A young voice but she has something of substance to say that belies her tender years. She is soulful, and as in her title tune “Rendezvous with Yesterdays”, deeply personal yet she is willing to share her thanks with those who inspired her. Deborah Brown
