Esperanza Spalding Was Big Time Before Her Grammy Win

Esperanza Spalding shocked shocked shocked when she took her jazzy self to the Staples Center stage last night to accept her Grammy for Best New Artist. While everyone else was asking “Who is this woman in the curious dress stealing a shiny prize from Justin Bieber?,” people who roll in White House circles knew exactly what was going on.

As you probably know by now, Spalding is a jazz artist. She’s played at the White House twice and performed for a United Nations event.

After her win, some angry teenagers didn’t give a fig who she was and took to the Internet to let her know that Bieber was robbed. We were rooting for Florence and the Machine, but we’re not haters. Congrats to Esperanza.
