Leslie Odom Jr. kicked off his late-night residency at The McKittrick Hotel last night, July 14, featuring a special surprise guest appearance by fellow Grammy winner Ledisi, who performed a duet with Leslie of her hit song "Alright." Scroll down for photos from the concert!

Grammy and Tony-winning star of Hamilton, Leslie Odom Jr. is performing in the intimate Manderley Bar for three consecutive Thursday nights beginning July 14, 2016 in support of his recently-released self-titled debut solo album of jazz classics.

Leslie Odom Jr. won the 2016 Tony Award for Leading Actor in a Musical for his star-making turn in the smash hit Broadway musical Hamilton, for which he also received the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album as a principal soloist on the original cast recording. His self-titled debut jazz album, Leslie Odom Jr., was released June 10th on S-Curve Records and debuted at #1 on Soundscan's Current Jazz and Traditional Jazz charts. The 10-track collection features Odom's soulful new interpretations of beloved songs that have been longtime favorites of his. Standout tracks on the album include Odom's ethereal rendition of the Jerome Kern gem "Look for the Silver Lining," a new arrangement of "The Guilty Ones" from Spring Awakening, a stunning percussion and piano-driven version of "Love Look Away" and his inspired take on the timeless classic "Autumn Leaves."

The concerts, with doors opening at 11pm ahead of an 11:30pm showtime, will feature songs from the album as well as surprise numbers and special guests.
