Esperanze Spaulding on bass & vocals

While watching this story abt how BET/MTV are loosing advertisers bc of their explicit rap content, I ended up listening then watching to the story that came next, on 23-year-old musician Esperanza Spalding. This beautiful afronista is doin her thing on a upright bass while singing jazz melodies that warm up your insides! Dopeness.

Esperanza’s tv debut on Letterman a few weeks ago:
