Leading Lady: Esperanza Spalding Covers T Magazine


The article celebrates Esperanza for being what News and Feature Director, Sally Singer, calls “a celebrity for all the right reasons and at the top of her game, in her artistic medium.”

Singer met Spalding at the White House’s poetry slam and tells WWD: “If he [President Barack Obama] had a favorite jazz musician, it would be her.” She’s one of our favorites too! Esperanza is one of the few celebrities that lets her art and passion take centerstage as opposed to her looks and personal life.
