BURBANK, CA (Warner Bros. Records) - A digital EP of soulstress Leela James performing live in New Orleans will go on sale exclusively through iTunes on March 14th. It will be made available for download by other online retailers two weeks later. The show, which took place in November 2004 at The House Of Blues, features songs from the Los Angeles native's critically acclaimed 2005 debut "A Change Is Gonna Come."

The accompanying video begins shooting in Los Angeles on March 15th and will be lensed by hot directorial team Coodie and Chike, who are known for their work with Kanye West and Mos Def.

James, whose throaty gospel-influenced voice has been described as "Chaka Khan meets Mahalia Jackson," was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for "Outstanding New Artist" and a Soul Train award for "Best New R&B-Soul Artist." She is currently on tour with KEM.
