Since recording her debut album while still at Berklee, vocalist, songwriter, pianist, and activist Lalah Hathaway ’90 has left a distinct mark on the world of R&B, soul, gospel, pop, and jazz as one of the most prodigiously gifted and versatile live and recording artists of our time. The daughter of Donny Hathaway, her three-decade, seven-album career has produced hits such as "Forever, for Always, for Love," which peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot Adult R&B Airplay chart, and a collaboration album with Joe Sample, The Song Lives On, which reached number two on the jazz album chart. Hathaway is known for her pristine vocal timbre, pitch acuity, and phenomenal vocal range and vocabulary, and her mastery of polyphonic overtone singing helped earn her a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance for "Something" with Snarky Puppy in 2014. Her creative ingenuity, expressive voice, and empowering, socially conscious writing has inspired a generation of music lovers and garnered five Grammys, including Best R&B Album for Lalah Hathaway Live and Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Angel” in 2017, and 10 Grammy nominations.
