James made her debut on the soundtrack of the 2000 Jamie Foxx film Bait on the Roots song “Work”, credited as Alechia James. In 2004, James toured as an opening act for the Black Eyed Peas and Macy Gray. That same year, she was featured on hip hop producer, DJ, and emcee Pete Rock’s album Soul Survivor II, providing vocals to the track “No Tears”.

James first appeared on the music scene with her debut album, 2005’s “A Change Is Gonna Come”, which charted at number 148 in the U.S. and at number 42 on the American R&B charts. The album was conceived as a throwback to an earlier era of American soul music, building upon the legacy of 1960s and 1970s soul singers.
