Watch: Lianne La Havas Performs on "CBS This Morning: Saturday"
Lianne La Havas kicked off a brief, six-city North American summer tour this past weekend with performances at Baltimore’s Soundstage on Friday and New York's SummerStage in Central Park Saturday night (which the New York Times recommended, citing her "silky vibrato and rich, husky timbre"). Unfortunately, La Havas was forced to cancel a set at the XPoNential Music Festival outside Philadelphia on Sunday due to tonsillitis. However, the tour is set to continue with performances this week at the Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton, MA, and La Sala Rossa and the Osheaga Festival in Montreal, before coming to a close at Lollapalooza in Chicago's Grant Park on Sunday.

Before her SummerStage show in Central Park on Saturday, Lianne La Havas stopped by the studios of CBS This Morning: Saturday to perform for the show's Second Cup Café. She played "Age" and "Lost & Found," two songs off her debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough?, released last year on Nonesuch Records.
"This is a record I can't stop listening to," says CBS This Morning: Saturday host Anthony Mason. "She brings a rich array of influences to her music and an expressive voice that's drawn a big following on iTunes."
You can watch the performances below.
