Singer Alice Tan Ridley is releasing her very first single – a remake of “Try A Little Tenderness.”
This track is the first official single 0ff of Ridley’s debut solo album, “Never Lost My Way.” If Ridley’s name sounds familiar, it’s because she’s received recognition (and income) from performing in New York City subway stations. On top of that, Ridley is also the mother of actress Gabourey Sidibe.
Ridley shares, “I am thrilled to release this very new and unique rendition of Otis Redding’s Try A Little Tenderness, one of my favorite songs of all times. You wouldn’t expect to hear those words with this arrangement!”.
Ridley is set to perform the new single at her album release party on Saturday, September 24, 2016 at 8 pm at the Highline Ballroom in NYC
Ridley’s rendition of the song is available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and Spotify.
