Ledisi is 'Better Than Alright' – she talks about her new book and what it means to be 'beautiful'

Multiple grammy-nominated singer Ledisi is loved by her fans not just for her music, but for her honesty and inspiration.

In her music video, "Bravo," she applauds people who reject negative stereotypes and celebrate positive self-images, singing:

"Stand up for yourself. Celebrate life. It don't matter who you are. You've been working hard. Give yourself a round of applause. Clap for yourself now."

Now she's taken that message and written about it in a new book called "Better Than Alright: Finding peace, love and power" which was written in collaboration with "Essence" magazine. She talks with Soledad about the book and shares her thoughts on the current standards of beauty.
