On Friday, November 29th, Leela James set the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club on FIRE with her voice and the energy of two people!!!!!! Leela James, who has earned the name “Baby Etta” started the show off, which by the way was packed, with a very old school feel that matches her old spirit. Her beautiful raspy voice is like no other and at one point she said “I can sing high notes as well,” and she did. The soulfulness in her is so unique and refreshing for someone whom is young in age, but definitely not young in spirit!
Because she loves her fans so much, she asked many in the audience to come on stage and have a party good time with her while she continued to perform and they LOVED IT! All I can say is WOW!!!! Of course, Leela performed all her hits, but before she departed the stage, she ended with the crowd’s favorite “SET ME FREE” and the audience LOST IT!!!
Before Leela left the stage and ended the show, she said these words of advice for us all to remember. “DON’T TRY TO KEEP ANYONE WHO DOESN’T WANT TO BE KEPT” – Great Advice Leela!
Highly recommend seeing this Soulful Sister and tell them JV JONES SENT YOU!
