Grace Kelly, the 28-year old musical prodigy who has taken the jazz world by storm with her electrifying music, scorching saxophone style and unique vocals, will be performing LIVE from Pinecrest Gardens on Saturday, February 27 to help raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts.
With a huge fanbase (nearly 100k Instagram followers), this innovative millennial is breaking the stereotype of what a jazz artist looks like. Before her mid-twenties, she had performed and recorded with legends like Gloria Estefan,Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Harry Connick, Jr. And in 2009 at the age of 16, Kelly performed for Barack Obama’s first inauguration before going on to be part of the house band at “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” Kelly uses digital media to elevate her music, turning three of her 13 studio albums into video albums and consistently sharing creative content across social media platforms.
