February 12th, 2017 — Solange Knowles Grammy Afterparty

This was hands down one of the coolest events I ever played. I wasn’t 100% aware of what this was before I arrived, but given that it was being held the night of the Grammy Awards at Solange Knowles’ house in Los Angeles, I realized that I was playing harp for her afterparty! Playing for Solange and her husband Alan was very exciting, but a few other amazing guests also sat in for a listen.

I was performing in a small, round room, my harp encircled by five or six chairs, and for a majority of the evening, I gave an impromptu solo concert for Solange, Alan, Beyoncé (yes, that Beyoncé), and Jay-Z. Some other notable guests who listened were Janelle Monáe, Kelly Rowland, and Rashida Jones. I played Happy Birthday for Kelly, and everyone sang along when I played “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” by Stevie Wonder.

Overall, it was a surreal experience and an amazing night, something that not every harpist gets to do. Enjoy the pictures below, and look out for more posts about fun events coming soon!
