MARSHA AMBROSIUS TO JOIN R. KELLY’S “LOVE LETTER” TOUR

SONGSTRESS CONCLUDES BET MUSIC MATTERS TOUR WITH RAVE REVIEWS:
“THE NEXT TIME SOMEONE WONDERS WHERE IT [R&B] WENT, SEND THEM MARSHA’S WAY,” – EW.COM

CURRENT SINGLE “FAR AWAY” CLAIMS THE #1 SPOT ON THE CHARTS


[New York, NY – April 20, 2011] – J Records’ artist MARSHA AMBROSIUS has been tapped to join R. Kelly and Keyshia Cole on the U.S. portion of Kelly’s “Love Letter” tour. Beginning June 2nd at the DeSoto Civic Center in Southaven, MS, the tour will make several stops across the country including Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta and Marsha’s adopted hometown, Philadelphia.

After achieving success as the “Songstress” in the now defunct duo Floetry (“Say Yes,” “It’s Getting Late”), Marsha’s solo debut album Late Nights & Early Mornings, entered at #1 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart and #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart in March. Hailing from Liverpool, England, Marsha’s Top 200 entry completed the British invasion trifecta for that week with Adele’s 21 and Mumford & Sons’ Sigh No More. Marsha’s current single, “Far Away” is #1 on the Urban Adult Airplay chart while the video is in Power Rotation at VH1 Soul.

Whether on stage or in the studio, the six-time Grammy nominated singer/songwriter/producer consistently amazes critics and fans with her witty songwriting skills and passionate singing. Entertainment Weekly’s recent review of the BET Music Matters tour in NYC which Marsha co-headlined alongside Melanie Fiona, states: “R&B, as some believe it should be, lives people. As a matter of fact, R&B never died. It might not be on your choice radio station or spun at the club. But trust me: If you search, you shall find. The next time someone wonders where it went, send them Marsha’s way.”
