Featuring 5-time Grammy Award winner and singing sensation Lalah Hathaway

The daughter of the great Donny Hathaway, Lalah Hathaway made a good impression with her self-titled debut recording in 1990. She not only displayed poise, confidence, and good technique, but also versatility. Her stage shows include jazz, pre-rock pop, and even gospel. A 2013 collaboration with the band Snarky Puppy– on a cover of Brenda Russell’s “Something” — won a 2014 Grammy Award in the category of Best R&B Performance. The following year, thanks to her role in Robert Glasper Experiment’s update of Stevie Wonder’s “Jesus Children of America,” Hathaway picked up the Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance. A version of “Little Ghetto Boy” took the 2016 Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance. Led by the single “Honestly,” Hathaway’s following studio album of the same name arrived in November 2017.
