This year, our godmother for 2016 is the incarnation of elegance, mystery, talent and sensuality… Melody Gardot, just 30, is already one of the great voices of jazz, but there’s even more to her than that. In 10 years, after discovering music as therapy after a serious accident, this American learnt guitar, piano, singing and has progressed through the ranks up to a Grammy nomination! The material of her most recent album, Currency of Man produced by Larry Klein, dives into her blues and folk roots. A five-star godmother for a brilliant end to the evening.
