Probably the most memorable moment of the 2011 Grammy Awards was when Esperanza Spalding won the Grammy award for Best New Artist, beating out...Justin Bieber. I didn't know who Esperanza was, but I was beyond glad that it had been proven the Grammys aren't a popularity contest (in this case, at least). Winning this Grammy could be one of the best things to happen to Esperanza's career. After her win, I decided to find out what she's all about and what her music sounds like. Needless to say, I was astonished at how talented she is. Her voice is marvelous and buttery smooth. She's an instrumentalist, which is a refreshing quality for a young women in the music industry these days to have. Plus, the music she plays is superb.If her win does for other people what it did for me, many will be benefiting from her music for years to come.
And another thing: she knows how to wear clothes. Nylon Magazine's blog has already featured her as "best dressed." She is so beautiful, and possesses a gorgeous mane. Her outfits have an effortless appeal to them and are amazing - she looks good without seeming as if she's trying too hard. And, as proven in the video below, the girl can accessorize. I'm really liking that scarf.
