Prince once said that Kandace Springs “has a voice that could melt snow.” Nashville pianist, songwriter, and vocalist Kandace Springs, together with her all-female band, comes to the Library of Congress for a unique virtual performance. Her program pays tribute to legendary female singers, including Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Carmen McRae, and Ella Fitzgerald, who inspired her to begin her journey towards becoming one of the premier jazz/soul vocalists of our time.
