Esperanza Spalding's Mentor, Thara Memory
Portland Native Esperanza Spalding shot to fame when she beat out Justin Bieber as "Best New Artist" at the 2011 Grammy Awards. She gave credit to her mentor and former teacher, Thara Memory.
Thara Memory joined us today to tell us about this weekend's benefit concert -- featuring Esperanza Spalding -- to help raise money for his American Music Program.
