Grace Kelly is Back! She sings. She plays sax. She arranges. She composes. And she’s only 20 years old. Multitalented Grace Kelly knows how to bring sweet music to our ears.

Recognized as a saxophonist, singer, composer, arranger, songwriter, and recording artist with talent like no other at her age Grace Kelly has performed and recorded with the likes of Lee Konitz, Wynton Marsalis, Phil Woods, Hank Jones, The Boston Pops, Harry Connick Jr. among many others.  She has appeared at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and Symphony Hall in Boston as well as a leader in over 500 jazz clubs and festivals worldwide, including the 2010 Newport Jazz Festival where she opened and the 2010 Montreal Jazz Festival and will return to both festivals again in 2011.

??With SEVEN CDs to her credit, Grace is preparing for another exciting benefit concert on September 28th at Bethel AME Church in Boston. The Concert is a musical tribute to the civil rights and anti-apartheid movements.

We will also dive right into presidential politics and discuss the latest campaign tactics between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. Voter suppression laws in states including Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Ohio could have heavy consequences in communities of color. And the perspective of some voters who don’t think President Obama is “one of us,” including the Birthers question whether a Black president will ever be accepted in all communities throughout America.  

The ultimate question:  Why does RACE still matter in the United States of America???
