Lalah Hathaway was born into music.  The daughter of the legendary soul singer Donny Hathaway and accomplished musician Eulalah Hathaway is often referred to as “The First Daughter of Soul,” not only because of who her parents are but also because of her undeniable vocal talent.  

The Grammy-Award winning artist has six studio albums and a countless number of appearances on some of the greatest soul collaborations of our time.  In fact, one of her lateest collaborations, “Jesus Children” is with fellow 2015 ESSENCE Fest performer Robert Glasper and actor Malcolm-Jamal Warner.

Her magical tone and haunting range have left our ESSENCE Fest audiences wanting more so for the fourth time in ESSENCE Fest history, the Chicago native will be performing on our Superlounge stage.  To get a taste of what to expect, relive her performance from 2009.
