Grammy Award Winner Le’Andria Johnson will be coming to the city of brotherly love on Monday, April 2, 2012. Out On A  Limb Productions will be featuring the power house singer in a make-up date that was supposed to take place in mid December 2011 but due to the untimely death of her grandmother, she was unable to fulfill her commitment.

This appearance marks the first time Le’Andria will be in Philadelphia since her Grammy win back in February and the event is highly anticipated. Debuting three albums in six months (a feat unheard of in both secular and gospel music), Le’Andria has kept quite busy, traveling all over the country doing concerts and award shows. The girl from Orlando, Florida with a heart wrenching testimony and has no qualms with being transparent, is one of the best singers to enter the gospel music industry since Vanessa Bell and is sure to be a legend in her own right in years to come.
