There doesn't seem to be any stopping Esperanza! Since becoming the first Jazz artist to ever win a Grammy for Best New Artist, as well as being an "upset" to all the Bieber fans worldwide, Esperanza is on top of the world. She released Radio Music Society last tuesday to rave reviews (see review), appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, and will be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight at 11:00 PM CST. Esperanza had originally hoped to release Radio Music Society side by side with Chamber Music Society, but I dont think anyone could shake a finger at how a 19 month delay has worked out. The album sky-rocketed to #10 on the Billoard's Top 200, announced this week, and despite being over a year and a half old, Chamber Music Society had peaked at 34 two weeks prior on the same chart, thanks to her Grammy success.
Esperanza Spalding will be taking the Pavilion stage, for her first ever performance at Ravinia, on June 26. This is an absolute "can't miss". Purchase your tickets starting on April 26, 2012. We'll see you there!
