Though it will surely be difficult for some fans to listen to without some sadness, on Monday, July 13, LeVert II consisting of original LeVert members, Sean Levert and Marc Gordon plus new member Blaq Rose will release their debut album appropriately titled Dedication.
To celebrate the release the surviving group members will kick off a promotional tour for the album with a CD Pre-release Party and Fan Appreciation Celebration at 9 p.m., Saturday night at Club Alchemy located at 1575 Merwin Avenue on the East Bank of Cleveland Flats.
The album and group were inspired by the 2006 death of Gerald Levert and with the blessing of family patriarch Eddie Levert, Sr. the group reconvened to record Dedication which continues the original trio's mix of bedroom ballads and club bangers and sadly features the last recordings of Sean Levert who died in 2008.
The event will have a live performance by LeVert II and fans will receive a free copy of Dedication a few days before it hits the stores.
