“Nedra’s self-titled sophomore release is a 2006 OUTMUSIC Award winner.  “Nedra’s voice echo’s a sound reminiscent of the music I was much too young to know. I dig her soulful flow,” states Rashida Lee, the winner of the Black Season Trivia that won Nedra’s CD.  Johnson opened the set with “Anyway you need her, she will come”, the perfect feel good gospel song about the almighty being a lesbian in her case but what ever you want it to be. Nedra entertains the audience with her fun lyrics, having everyone laughing out loud to this song.  Other song’s she performs includes, “Ahh (It’s A Good Thing)” with the help of the audience singing the chorus; and of course “Forever With Me” which played on the L word season three among other songs.

“I really enjoyed Nedra performance. She has a beautiful soulful voice accompanied by her guitar. I love seeing live music performances. Nedra lived way beyond my expectations. I look forward to inviting  her back to perform at a later date,” states Angel L. Brown, Creator and organizer of The Black Season.
