My Co-worker just put me on an artist named Esperanza Spalding. The lyrics to her song entitled Precious, "You always wanted
Something more from my body And said you needed Something more from my loving But all you got was me And that's all that I can be I'm sorry if it let you down But I'm not gonna sit around and waste My precious divine energy Trying to explain and being ashamed of things You think are wrong with me" are the truth! Her voice is not only tantalizing but an infusion of jazz, Caribbean, and Spanish (she actually sings in English, Portuguese and Spanish). By the age of five, Spalding taught herself to play the violin and before she began high school she learned to play the oboe and clarinet. It was at high school where she discovered her love for the bass. Spalding has released two albums, Junjo (2006) and Esperanza (2008). To read more about Esperanza Spalding, go to the link below.
