Ann Nesby - Lula Lee Project - 2009
The Lula Lee Project, Nesby’s third full Gospel/Inspirational album after 2003’s Make Me Better and 2006’s In The Spirit showcases a more colorful and edgier “out of the box” approach to the Christian inspired genre; “I Found a Place,” the album’s lead single serves up a smooth head nodding bass line as Nesby soulfully croons about a special and secret place in prayer that we can escape to when the storms of life come. Other notable tracks include, “Sad But It’s True,” a funk driven track that will become an anthem for both men and women as it showcases Nesby’s “Lula Lee” persona that bluntly ‘keeps it real,’ addressing the lack of responsibility both men and women sometime demonstrate in their relationships. “Higher,” reflects the place that all of us have found ourselves in at some point in time when things seem wrong and you pray asking God to bring you out of the circumstance. Taking a serene approach in rhythm & praise, Nesby’s delivery in the laid back groove of “When the Praises Go Up” and “Sow Love” demonstrate her vocal dexterity. The Lula Lee Project is a musical montage of situations everyone faces and is consistent in the theme of God’s love and devotion toward us all when we believe. Nesby by far is a music industry mainstay with a career spanning over 20 years in music, theater, and film. With a bevy of accolades - multiple Grammy and Stellar award nominations; Ann Nesby is one of music’s elite and the singer that American Idol’s Randy Jackson called “one of the best singers in the world!” Ann Nesby aka “Lula Lee” is the embodiment of what it is to be soulful. Listen and you will be inspired!
