Esperanza and The Smithsonian Museum

The National Museum of American History will be collecting from Esperanza Spalding as part of the museum’s women in jazz initiative, which began last April with Jazz Appreciation Month 2011.

In 2009, Spalding performed at the Nobel Prize ceremony in Oslo, Norway, at the invitation of President Obama. Spalding was most recently recognized for her musical talents in February 2011 when she won the GRAMMY® for Best New Artist. Born in Portland, Oregon, Spalding studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass., where she went on to become one of the youngest teachers at Berklee at the age of 20.

  • I just saw Esperanza last night at the Warner Theater in Washington DC. I am a bigger fan now! (so glad her talent beat out pop Bieber for the Grammar) It was the best, most authentic, passionate performance i’ve ever witnessed in my life! I CRIED during her final number…”We Will Never Touch the Ground!’ Esperanza’s talent is so pure and honest!!! I’m praying that the recording executives don’t destroy her!!

    Now…PLEASE, where can I order a t-shirt?
