"THROUGH ENOUGH" WITH VANJESS
10/17/19

Nigerian-American duo VanJess, composed of sisters Ivana and Jessica Nwokike, recently released an Amazon exclusive cover of “Groove Thang” by Zhané. Heavily influenced by '90s R&B, the duo made their debut last year with record “Silk Canvas,” which featured notable artists such as Masego, GoldLink, and Berhana.

Signed to Keep Cool, the girls have also contributed shimmering vocals on Kaytranada's single "DYSFUNCTIONAL," opened for Masego on his North American Lady, Lady Tour, performed on SNL with Khalid, and played the L.A. Residency show Soulection last month.

Watch the video for "Through Enough" ft. GoldLink below.

A TEACHABLE MOMENT
10/17/19

The GRAMMY Museum is celebrating Heather Moore of Arcadia High School in Arcadia, CA as the 2019 Jane Ortner Education Award recipient. Honoring K-12 academic teachers, the award acknowledges teachers who use music in the classroom as an educational tool.

Moore will receive an honorarium and be recognized at the GRAMMY Museum in L.A. later this year, in addition to being given two tickets to next year’s GRAMMY Awards. Acadia High School will also receive a grant. Moore’s submission for the award looked at the human condition during the Great Depression through the songs of Louis Armstrong, Woody Guthrie, Rosemary Clooney, and others.

Moore says, “I have always believed that music is a beautiful and important way to connect students with the people and stories of the past. The Jane Ortner Award is a wonderful acknowledgement and celebration of music's centrality to education and our human story.”

President of the GRAMMY Museum Michael Sticka adds, "We look forward to honoring Heather Moore for her dedication to executing cutting-edge lesson plans and devotion to creating a positive influence on her students through the power of music."

The Jane Ortner Education Award for teachers, as well as the Jane Ortner Artist Award, was established by the GRAMMY Museum in partnership with Chuck Ortner, the entertainment attorney, Museum Board member, and husband of the late Jane Ortner, a devoted public-school teacher who valued music in academia.

Applications for the 2020 Jane Ortner Education Award will be accepted through 12/4. For more info, click here.
