Lalah Hathaway

Aug 10, Friday - 9:30pm
Sobrato Organization Main Stage

Listeners can’t help but be wrapped up in and in awe of vocalist / songwriter / producer Lalah Hathaway’s tremendous singing and borderless, cross-genre musical concepts. Her infectious blend of R&B, gospel, jazz, pop and rock has, in turn, been embraced by multiple generations.

Musicians love her, too. Hathaway won the Best R&B Performance Grammy in 2014 for her collaboration with the red-hot beyond jazz collective Snarky Puppy on Brenda Russell’s “Something.”

A year later, she was awarded another Grammy, for Best Traditional R&B Performance. For that, she teamed with Robert Glasper Experience, along with Malcom-Jamal Warner, on an interpretation of Steve Wonder’s “Jesus Children.”

The following two years, Hathaway was honored by Grammy voters for her own work. In 2016, the Best Traditional R&B Performance Grammy went to her for her version of her late father Donny Hathaways’s “Little Ghetto Boy.” She doubled down the following year by winning for both Traditional R&B Performance (for “Angel”) and Best R&B Album (Lalah Hathaway Live), becoming the first and only artist to ever “three-peat” in the Best Traditional R&B category.

Whether lauded by her peers or adored by her fans, Hathaway’s praise is deserved and reflected back to audiences whether pumped over home speakers…or at 2018 Summer Fest.
