Black History Month Beauty: Esperanza Spalding

Ever heard of REAL MUSIC?  It does exist, believe me.  So let the Passions school you on a couple things.

Esperanza Spalding IS real music.  Ok, so she might be a bit sophisticated for some taste –  a 24yr old prodigy rocking out some incredible jazz on a bass violin and an acoustic guitar (the Passions has a thing for strings) writing lyrics that will melt your ear wax and fuck up your heart-strings.  This powerhouse, teaches, tours does prestigious collabos, she’s played for POTUS and FLOTUS at the White House.  And now after winning a Grammy – one can say she is pretty much well accomplished.  Just an amazing talent.  If you don’t believe me, if you really care, go to iTunes and sample, take a listen and become enlightened.

And that’s all I’m gonna say on the topic, except that, little sis rocks NATURAL HAIR!!!!!!  She has the most beautiful crop of locs in music.  The genius starts from the top of her spectacular head spreading out to the rest of her obviously profound soul.  She’s a rich mix of African-American, Welsh, Native American and Spanish and today, Esperanza Spalding is rocking BLACK HISTORY MONTH at the Passions.

The New York Times answers the question:  Who is Esperanza Spalding?

Happy V-J-J Day, My Passions Lovelies.  Sending Loving and Heart wishes to you all.
