Latice Crawford Performs ‘Black Music Honors’
Acclaimed recording artist Latice Crawford is set to be part of a tribute performance to the multi-award-winning music legend, Oleta Adams. The performance will be broadcasted all across the USA on 15th October as Black Music Honors on the cable network, Bounce TV. There will also be additional rebroadcasts that will run throughout the fall season.
Also featuring also performances by Avery Sunshine and Leela James, Crawford’s dynamic performance of Adam’s song, “Holy Is The Lamb,” from Adams' 1997 Come Walk with Me album, moved the multi-genre artist to tears.
Following the taping, Adams expressed her esteemed gratitude to Crawford:
“Thank you for transforming the Tennessee Performing Arts Center from an entertainment place to a place of worship. I forgot where I was; and felt honored just being there worshipping with you. With a gift, so special much is required. Thank you for honoring me; and everyone else in such a beautiful way. I can still hear you singing.”
“It was a huge honor for me to perform in the musical tribute to Oleta Adams,” says Crawford. “She is the epitome of musical excellence and an inspiration to me in many ways. She defines a lot of what I would like to do with my recording career—to sing jazz—and to sing songs about life that are positive and not derogatory. I also like that I was able to appear on another television show that paid tribute to music and legends across multiple genres.”
Additionally, Crawford’s has ties to the fashion and beauty industries making her second runway appearance during the recent New York Fashion Week with fashion designer Byron Lars for his “Fairy Tales Ending” Collection. Crawford is one of Lars’ go-to models for many of his fashion events and presentations. Lars is well-known for his fashion designs for former First Lady Michelle Obama, Taylor Swift, Angela Bassett, and many more.
Crawford is currently working on her third studio album after the release of her project, Diary of a Church Girl, which includes two top 20 singles, “Choose Me” and “Author.” Diary of a Church Girl was written by Crawford and produced by Bruce Robinson (Alexis Speight, The Showers, and others).
