Without hesitation, Grace Kelly will tell you that her goal is « to stay in jazz but also do different things, bigger arrangements, like Stevie Wonder and George Benson.” Monty Alexander says, « She is not an artist for Jazz lovers only but one for the whole world.” Her ambition has yet to outstrip her talent, and Grace manifests only the beginning of the young artist’s quest to continue to reinvent herself. As Ann Hampton Callaway predicts, « There is no telling how far this child prodigy will go with the limitless possibilities of her voluminous talents.”
