leela james

It’s been a while since we last heard from Leela James. Now Leela is back with a new project and it’s gonna be an ambitious one. On July 31 she will be releasing her album Loving You More… In the Spirit of Etta James and as you might be able to deduct from the title, it will consist of Leela performing songs by her legendary, dearly departed namesake. Check out her upbeat rendition of Etta’s “Something’s Got a Hold On Me” below and hit the jump to catch a glimpse of James becoming James in the video shoot.
