May 15 - Saxophonist/Composer/Vocalist - Grace Kelly
Grace Kelly has the dubious distinction of being the youngest ever named for three consecutive years in the annual Downbeat Magazine Critics Poll, as one of the Alto Saxophone Rising Stars, At the tender age of 22, Grace has already graced the stage and/or recorded with a well distinguished group of internationally renouned artists such as Phil Woods, Dave Brubeck, Wynton Marsallis, Esperanza Spalding, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Monty Alexander, Rufus Reid, and the list goes on and on.
This will be my third interview with this talented young lady; and, well, you know what they say, "three's the charm." Join me as Grace will be sharing some exciting news and updates you just do not want to miss.
Meet Grace Kelly..When it comes to singer/ saxophonist/ composer/ lyricist/ arranger/ producer/ educator Grace Kelly, people seem to be divided into two groups: those who marvel at her proficiency, creativity and ever-accelerating growth, and those who have yet to encounter the 21-year-old wunderkind. The ranks of the former category are growing by the day. Trumpeter and Jazz at Lincoln Center Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis was so impressed with Kelly’s three-night stand as guest of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra that he invited her to join the ensemble at the Kennedy Center’s Eisenhower Theater in Washington, D.C. for Barack Obama's Inauguration Celebration. Harry Connick, Jr. heard Kelly in a master class on a December afternoon and brought her on stage to sit in with his band that night. Since then, Kelly has been voted "Best Jazz Act” in Boston four consecutive years in the FNX/Phoenix Best Music Poll, and then voted Best National Jazz Act in 2012. She has received the ASCAP Foundation’s Young Jazz Composers Award in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013 and won "Jazz Artist of the Year” at the Boston Music Awards in both 2008 and 2010. The 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Downbeat Critics Poll added to her the list naming her one of the "Alto Saxophone Rising Stars”, the youngest artist ever to be named to the music poll.

Simply Grace honors diversity in faith and experience by providing a sacred space of kindness, compassion, love and hope for humanity. The Blessing Circle is a divine interruption, a gentle reminder of the abundant grace present in our lives.
Faith is when we close our eyes and open our hearts…to be vulnerable, to surrender, to trust as we lean back into the arms of grace and God. Each Friday morning we are humbled to invite you to be present with global community and participate in our weekly Blessing Circle offering the highest form of prayer, gratitude to our creator. Our intention is to gently awaken grace…one soul at a time. This is an invitation to receive whatever is present in your experience and blessings for the journey.
The moment faith becomes a reality in our vision, we begin to see the invisible, believe the impossible, and do the incredible…breathing grace into our hearts and our very being.
Grace is the light, the love, the hope, the faith that fills each of our souls with peace, moment by moment, notice the extraordinary, life is a beautiful wonder…feel its divine miracle.
