Joshua Ledet Brings Memphis Soul to the White House

On April 9th, the standing ovational Joshua Ledet sang his passionate rendition of Percy Sledge’s “When A Man Loves A Woman” (one of his many highlights from Season 11 of American Idol) for PBS’s musical tribute to Memphis Soul at the White House. He had the entire audience on their feet – including President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Every time I watch Joshua perform, I am blown away by his phenomenal talent. His voice is one of the few that can move me to tears and inspire to me to not only rise up and give him a deserved standing O, but to get up and do something just as amazing with my own life. I think that’s a truly special gift for a musician to have!
