But, as with anyone, there’s a back story to her rise to Grammy earning career. Here are five things you didn’t know about Esperanza Spalding.

    I love her! I was surprised that she was nominated for best new artist because she has been around for so long. I bought Ezperanza back in 2008 and have been up on her music ever since.
