There are many events that lead up to the 66th Grammy Awards, but the Grammy House offers a unique experience for music students and young artists. The invite only affair features a weekend packed with events like the Celebration of Women In The Mix, Beats & Blooms Emerging Artist Showcase, and a #GRAMMYsNextGen Party and Red Carpet! In between all the high energy however, the GRAMMY U Masterclass with Halle Bailey was both educational and inspiring.

The conversation, moderated by 65th Grammy winner Muni Long, was full of Black Girl Magic and offered attendees a chance to do some self reflection. Halle, who just became a first time mom, had a trailblazing year topping the Billboard charts with her single ‘Angel’. She also landed two major roles as Ariel in the Little Mermaid’s live version and Nettie Harris in the remake of The Color Purple. Bailey shared intimate thoughts about her mindset and process during these events saying, “You can do so much more than you’ve ever thought.” She even left the audience stunned with an acoustic performance of ‘Angel’ live on stage!
