Saw her a couple of years ago in concert in Hollywood, CA.  Best concert I've ever seen in my 60 years.  Audience mostly young musicians in awe.

Cynthia Hawkins says:

I love this video. I am dumbstruck by her gifts! What a delightful young artist. And how cool to catch out of the corner of my eye off camera, a rapt President Obama and his First Lady.

Elisa Samantha Tobing says:

"The brightest young star in the jazz horizon." Completely agree.

I have her discography and I think no one at her age that I know has accomplished such mastery.  #jazz   #overjoyed   #esperanzaspalding   #whitehouse

I have always LOVED the lyrics:

OVERJOYED

Over time, I've been building my castle of love
Just for two, though you never knew you were my reason
I've gone much too far for you now to say
That I've got to throw my castle away

Over dreams, I have picked out a perfect come true
Though you never knew it was of you I've been dreaming
The sandman has come from too far away
For you to say come back some other day

And though you don't believe that they do
They do come true
For did my dreams
Come true when I looked at you
And maybe too, if you would believe
You too might be
Overjoyed, over loved, over me

Over hearts, I have painfully turned every stone
Just to find, I had found what I've searched to discover
I've come much too far for me now to find
The love that I've sought can never be mine

And though you don't believe that they do
They do come true
For did my dreams
Come true when I looked at you
And maybe too, if you would believe
You too might be
Overjoyed, over loved, over me

And though the odds say improbable
What do they know
For in romance
All true love needs is a chance
And maybe with a chance you will find
You too like I
Overjoyed, over loved, over you, over you

Gosh, she's just amazing and singing one of my favourite Stevie Wonder songs! I couldn't have imagined another equally as enjoyable version, but with a jazz slantto it. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂
