The Grammy’s Gets It Right: Esperanza Spalding FTW!

The Grammy’s Gets It Right: Esperanza Spalding FTW!

Familiarize yourself with the amazing jazz bassist, Esperanza Spalding, who pulled Justin Beiber’s hopes of winning the Best New Artist Grammy right from under him tonight. Her Wikipedia bio had to be locked this evening due to all of the angry Beiber fans who went on the attack. I fell in love with Ms. Spalding a few years ago and have been hoping that she’d eventually break through. She’s a vocalist, bassist, composer and arranger and while I feel the recognition is well overdue, it is more than likely right on time.
